Women and Social Movements in the United States brings together books, images, documents, scholarly essays, commentaries, and bibliographies, documenting the multiplicity of women’s reform activities. The resource, which examines perspectives on women’s social movements from Colonial times to the present, was developed by Thomas Dublin and Kathryn Kish Sklar of the State University of New York at Binghamton. They are assisted by a scholarly editorial board of fourteen historians. Because of the careful presentation of the primary documents, Women and Social Movements in the United States will appeal to scholars, teachers, and students at all levels.
Twenty thousand pages of books, pamphlets, and related materials provide scholars with in-depth access to the published histories and records of women’s reform organizations throughout the United States across the 19th and early 20th centuries. “One Hundred Years of the Women's Suffrage Movement,” the first installment of this component of the website, includes The History of Woman Suffrage (6 volumes, 1881-1922), proceedings of national conventions of female antislavery societies in the 1830s; proceedings of women’s rights conventions in the 1850s and 1860s; annual reports of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union; and local and national histories of the General Federation of Women.
