Women's History

Hello, my name is Chad B. and I am doing a research paper on the women's rigths movement. So, If you could please lead me in the right direction on where I can start this research paper. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Chad B.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and for asking for our help with your research paper. Before you begin researching the entire women's rights movement, you should figure out what aspect you want to focus on. For instance,

--individual women--such as Susan B. Anthony (advocate for women to get the vote, among other things), Ida B. Wells (a woman's/civil rights advocate active in the post-bellum south), Jeanette Rankin (the first woman to serve in Congress, elected in 1916)

--a specific moment in women's history such as the fight for birth control, for women to be able to own/inherit property, or for the Vote.

--You could also do underlying themes--like women in politics, women in law, etc...

Once you begin to fine-tune your idea it will be easier for you to reseach and for me to answer specific questions.

I hope that helps -- good luck.
