This database is intended to serve as a resource for students and scholars of U.S. history and U.S. women's history. It offers access to the history of women in social movements in the U.S. between 1600 and 2000. Included are teaching tools and questions based on the document projects.
The archives houses the speeches and campaign advertising of U.S. women senators and representatives, cabinet members, Supreme Court justices, governors and lieutenant governors, and first and second ladies; international women leaders; and recipients of the Mary Louise Smith Chair in Women and Politics at Iowa State University. It also features the speeches of historically significant women, social activists and women who have used their position of celebrity to advocate for political causes.
