Women's History

I am a ninth grader at Minnetonka High School in Minnesota. For school I am doing a report about the history of women in American politics. I would appreciate it very much if you would give me any information that you could, pamphlets, web site URLs, email addresses of women I could contact, etc. - Anna Moschet

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com and for bringing women's history to your ninth grade class at Minnetonka High School. To start collecting information on "history of women in American politics" -- I recommend that you look through questions and answers here under the "Women's History" section at Ask Amy. This will point you in the direction of other resources and also introduce you to some great women in American history.

Another first stop should be both the National Women's History Project and the National Women's Political Caucus .

If you are interested in specific individual women in America's political history, I suggest you research the following as a start: Victoria Woodhull, Shirley Chisolm, Jeanette Rankin, Dorothy Height, Geraldine Ferraro, Lenora Fullani, and any of the present women in the U.S Senate or House--which includes: Maxine Waters, Olympia Snowe, Barbara Boxer, Carol Mosley Braun, Nydia Velasquez, Cynthia McKinney, etc.
