The latest issue of Women and Social Movements in the U.S. is now live. Subscribers will find a wide range of new materials—document projects, document archives, book reviews, full-text sources, and News from the Archives. If you subscribe to the Scholar's Edition, you'll also find a new secondary essay relating to the publications of State and Local Commissions on the Status of Women.
The new document projects include:
- an exploration of the contributions of African American women to the civil rights movement in the twentieth century, by Professor Gail Murray
- a compelling view of the work of Catholic laywomen during, and just after, World War I to provide social services for immigrants in East St. Louis, IL, by Jeanne Petit
In the new document archive, Marcia Gallo offers a selection of issues from The Ladder, published by the Daughters of Bilitis between 1956 and 1972. In her introductory essay, Gallo discusses the founding and the evolution of the magazine and its place in the emerging lesbian and second-wave feminist movements in these years. The archive itself includes more than a thousand pages chosen to illuminate the changing approaches taken by the journal’s editors over time.
