Women and Social Movements in America

If you have an assignment that explores social movements or women's history in America, for example in areas related to feminism (or even the anti-feminist movement), women's suffrage and the ERA, women's labor movements, women's role in the anti-slavery or anti-lynching movements, or just about any other historical American event or reform movement involving women, you will want to check out the Women and Social Movements in the United States 1600-2000 online collection.

This is a searchable resource providing easy access to key primary source documents (documents created at the time of the event) and in accompanying secondary, scholarly materials - full-text books, essays, commentaries and biographies. The collection also includes a dictionary of social movements and organizations, a chronology of women's social history, and more than 600 historical images. This tool is maintained by the Center for the Historical Study of Women and Gender at the State University of New York, Binghamton.

You can access this service by going to the library home page and clicking on the "Resources by Subject (or by title)" links in the left column or connect directly: Women and Social Movements in the United States.
