Women and Social Movements in the United States is a resource for students and scholars of U.S. history and U.S. women's history. Organized around the history of women in social movements in the U.S. between 1600 and 2000, this collection seeks to advance scholarly debates and understanding about U.S. women’s history generally and at the same time make those insights accessible to teachers and students at universities, colleges, and high schools. The collection currently includes 122 document projects and archives with 4,900 documents and more than 168,000 pages of additional full-text documents, written by more than 2,600 primary authors. It also includes book, film, and website reviews, notes from the archives, and teaching tools.

We are in the midst of our search to find a new editorial team and editorial home for Women and Social Movements in the United States to begin January 1, 2019. We expect to make an announcement about the new editors in our March 2017 issue.

OUR CROWDSOURCING EFFORTS: Looking toward the upcoming centennial of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment that gave women nationally the right to vote, we are preparing an Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the United States. For this project we are preparing biographical sketches of Black Woman Suffragists and supporters of the National Woman’s Party and the National American Woman Suffrage Association. We expect this work will yield names of more than 2,500 activists. We are working with colleagues who are writing biographical sketches or supervising the work of students. If you are able to participate in this project during the next two years, please email Tom Dublin, who is coordinating this effort.
