FREE online resource celebrates Women’s History Month

Alexander Street Press is celebrating Women’s History Month by offering the online collection, Women and Social Movements in the U.S., 1600-2000, Scholar’s Edition, FREE for the entire month! Of particular interest are their Document Projects, which group texts around key areas of women’s history like:

From Wollstonecraft to Mill: What British and European Ideas and Social Movements Influenced the Emergence of Feminism in the Atlantic World, 1792-1869?

How Did Susanna Rowson and Other Reformers Promote Higher Education as an Antidote to Women’s Sexual Vulnerability, 1780-1820?

How Did Diverse Activists Shape the Dress Reform Movement, 1838-1881?

How Did Black and White Southern Women Campaign to End Lynching, 1890-1942?

And many many more fascinating topics. Each question links to a resource section which includes an abstract, an interpretation of documents, and the primary documents themselves.
