My name is Wanda, and I am a second year college student. For my History class, I need to write a paper on the Feminist movement in the 19th Century. I would appreciate any information that you could give me about the feminist movement...what effects it had during this time period, why it took place, etc.. Thank you! Wanda

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and good luck with your report. For 19th Century Feminism, here are my thoughts:

  1. ) The National Women's History Project. Since 1998 marks the 150th anniversary of the Women's Rights Convention at Seneca Falls, NY-they are doing many activities honoring and chronicling the past 150 years.
  2. A Century of Women: The History of Women in Britain and the United States by Sheila Rowbotham (Viking Press.)
  3. A History of Women in American by Carol Hymowitz and Michaele Weissman
  4. Feminism: The Essential Historial Writings edited by Miriam Schneir.
Also, there is a just published book by Barbara Goldsmith on the life of Victoria Woodhull. Her life is a great example of feminism in the 19th century.
