Women's History

I'm a student of english philology and I'm making a paper about Feminism in Slavery Works. My principal question is: Do you have any information about that topic? Where can I find information about the topic? Thanks for all, Jose

Thanks for your note, however, I'm not entirely sure that I understand your question. I assume that you are asking about feminism's relationship to slavery--meaning how were feminists impacted by slavery and/or how did feminists impact slavery. If that is correct, I can recommend a few books:

1.) bell hook's Ain't I A Woman--among other things hooks talks about how white women in many ways were the direct oppressors of black women in slave times and how this played out in women's lives--and continuing today.

2.) Mothers of Invention: Women of the Slaveholding South in the American Civil War by Drew Gilpin Faust, which touches on a similiar subject.

3.) Any books about Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth are likely to touch upon these same subjects as both were abolitionists and feminists.

I hope that helps. Good luck.
