Women's History

Hello, I was hoping you could direct me to some useful sites or any other information concerning women in this century, preferably during the mid to late 1930's and the early to mid 1950's. The topic I chose to research were the similarties and differences in the 1939 film "The Women" and its 1956 remake "The Opposite Sex". I wanted to do this especially in terms of their historical contexts, and how the portrayal of women progressed over this period of time. Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Leslie


Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. There are a few feminist books devoted entirely to the 1950s and I think that would be a good start:

There are also some books which include summations, documentations of these times, such as Ellen Chesler's biography of Margaret Sanger--Woman of Valor. Margaret came of age during this time, so there might be some helpful hints.
