Women's History

Dear Amy,

I am doing a report on the limitations that married women used to live under, back in the old days. Well, I have to do an oral presentation and would love to quote a feminist speech on the subject, but I am having trouble finding one that relates to my topic.

I would really appreciate if you could guide me in the direction of a website where I might be able to find some good quotes relating to my subject.

Thank you for your time, I hope to hear from you soon!

Myriam

 

Myriam,

I don't really have a sense of what the old days were, there are so many of them, and therefore not sure I can help.

In the 1800s, I think you can find something by Susan B. Anthony. Also, Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrote tons on this, but not sure if she ever lectured on it. And in more recent past, perhaps Alix Kates Shulman, again tons of written stuff, not sure about the lecture.

Good luck,

-- Amy
