Women and Social Movements
In the United States,

Grade Level: 9-12+

This site is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and is intended for classroom use. It offers a collection of online primary documents and supporting materials that will enable "students to connect women's history with themes they are encountering in their American history courses."

This site's unpretentious appearance does not detract from the attributes of the valuable 300+ documents found here.

This site is well organized with easily navigable links. The format of the projects is uniform with a clear statement of the research question, a short introduction, and links to various documents. Users can choose to begin with the introduction or go straight to the document section. An internal search engine allows students to search the site by keywords.

Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1830-1930 is series of research projects completed by students at the State University of New York at Binghamton.

Each project includes a research question, introduction with background, bibliography, list of related Web sites, and 15 to 20 primary documents. This site is an outstanding reference for anyone interested in women's studies. History teachers, especially, will want to add this to their list of most valuable sites.
