Review of WASM, November 2010

Women and Social Movements
in the United States, 1600-2000

Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1600-2000, remains the centerpiece of the work of the Center for the Historical Study of Women and Gender. One of the premier resources on the Worldwide Web for the teaching of U.S. history, the website began in 1997. It consists of 120 document projects and archives with more than 4,850 primary documents intended for use in college classrooms and for historical research. It also includes an effective search engine that provides users with full-text searching of all the primary documents mounted on the site. In addition, its authors' database is fully integrated into its search capabilities. We publish new materials in March and September. If you are interested in preparing a document project or archive, writing a book or website review, or preparing a teaching tool, please contact WASM co-editor, Tom Dublin.

In March 2007 we began co-publishing a greatly expanded version of the database with Alexander Street Press as WASM Scholar's Edition. In addition to document projects, full-text sources, and other resources, we assembled a major online collection of the publications of federal, state, and local commissions on the status of women since 1963. The collection includes about 90,000 pages of resources. In addition, in 2009 we integrated into the Scholar's Edition the five-volume biographical dictionary, Notable American Women (1971-2004). The Scholar's Edition is available at For a free trial and information on how your library can subscribe to this resource, click here.
