A searchable collection of primary documents and images on a wide range of topics pertaining to U.S. women's history. The new Scholar's Edition features enhanced content and search tools that make it ideal for research and scholarship. It includes the Basic Edition plus 75,000 additional pages of previously inaccessible data and statistics from the publications of local and state commissions on women since 1963. These publications embrace an astonishing range of issues, employing pamphlets, posters, personal narratives, advice literature, training guides, interviews, and other ephemera that provide snapshots of women's struggle for equality over time and across regions. The items are rich in personal testimony, chronologies, milestones, biographies, laws and legal challenges, recommendations, training instruction, and self-help guides. The Scholar's Edition is a must for anyone interested in in-depth research in US History, Women's Studies, and Sociology.
The Scholar's Edition will also include an indexed, searchable online edition of the highly respected research tool, Notable American Women: A Biographical Dictionary (5 vols, 1971-2004), fully integrated into the broader Women and Social Movements database. For the first time, the rich resources of this biographical dictionary will be available to scholars online, employing the powerful research tools pioneered by Alexander Street.
