Women's History

Hi, My name is Iris and I am a junior at the University of Miami. I am writing to you because for one of my final exams I was assigned to research the roles of women in government after the civil rights movement.. can you give me a lead? Thanks, Iris

Thanks for your note. As for women's role in government after the civil rights, I'm afraid that women didn't have much direct role in government until the 20th century. However, there are some great examples after the Civil War, such as Jeannette Rankin serving as a Congresswoman from Montana (or Wyoming) and Victoria Woodhull running for president. I'm sure there are also examples of women serving at the state and city and county levels. I suggest you contact the National Women's History Project and the National Women's Political Caucus.
