I am researching the experiences of
women who took part in civil rights and new left
student movements during the 1960s.I have been
trying to track down some key women who were
activists for civil rights and the new left,
who then went on to become feminist activists
for women's rights by the 1970s.
I hope to show
that women played a very important role in the
day-to-day running of such movements for social
change, although women were subjected to male
domination and kept in the shadows, so that men
could pursue their public male roles!!
to highlight the women who took part and show
that although men have gone down in history as
the most important activists they were not!I
have consulted numerous works such as Sara M.
Evans, Belinda Robnett, Angela Davis, etc, but
would really like to find some women to interview.
If you have any ideas on this subject I would
be really grateful!
