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. history generally at the same time that it makes the insights of women's history accessible to teachers and students at universities, colleges, and high schools. The collection currently includes 120 document projects and archives with 4,850 documents and more than 165,000 pages of additional full-text documents, written by 2,600 primary authors. It also includes book, film, and website reviews, notes from the archives, and teaching tools. Those subscribing to the Scholar's Edition can access the online version of Notable American Women or the database on Commissions on the Status of Women. Learn more >>

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 lists of Black Woman suffragists and supporters of the National Woman’s Party and the National American Woman Suffrage Association that we expect will exceed more than a thousand activists. We are soliciting volunteers to write biographical sketches or to supervise the work of students in their classes. If you are interested in participating in this project sometime in the next two years, please email Tom Dublin, who is coordinating this effort.
