Women's History

I really needed help on a history project ("American Women: Changing Roles and Expectations"). I need some advice on women's political standpoints of the 1920's to present. I have to write the differences. Can you help? Thanks.

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com and I have some suggestions, which I hope will be helpful:

1. The best place to start is the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) at Rutgers University. They are a research based organization:

CAWP
Eagleton Institute of Politics - Rutgers University
New Brunswick, New Jersey 08901
Phone: (908) 932-9384; Fax: (908) 932-6778

2. The National Women's Political Caucus. They weren't created until the early 1970's, so they can help you with some of the more recent stuff. They have great statistics over the years about how many women in politics, etc....

NWPC
1211 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Suite 425
Washington, DC 20036
Phone: (202) 785-1100; Fax (202) 785-3605

I would also try the National Women's History Project. There is also a book called The American Woman that has some information. This is a book that comes out every year, so there are lots of different editions.
