The Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the United States is currently under development, its first installment to appear in September 2018. It will include crowdsourced biographical sketches and writings of more than 3,000 women suffrage activists, primarily concentrated in the period 1890-1920. We are aiming for an inclusive collection, including white and black suffragists, mainstream and militant suffragists. The sketches will place women’s suffrage activism within the frame of women’s broader social agenda, before and after the passage of the 19th Amendment in August 1920.
In this issue we publish one new document project and add to the "Biographical Database of Militant Woman Suffragists, 1913-1920" document project. The issue also includes 25 new biographical sketches and a modest number of documents that we are adding to the Black Women Suffragists collection. And we are publishing in our full-text sources section a first installment of what will eventually be an almost complete run of the feminist journal, Equal Rights, 1923-1954.
