Women's History in America

This site was created as part of a partnership between the History Department at the University of Memphis Libraries' Preservation and Special Collections Department of the University Libraries.

Students in the Spring 2016 section of HIST 4851: Women in American History worked in groups to research primary sources housed in the University of Memphis Libraries Special Collections, digitized those sources, and created this exhibit. The Tennessee women highlighted in this exhibit demostrate the diverse experiences and often under-recongnized influence of women from Memphis and the surrounding area.

Special thanks to Morgan Walker (graduate student intern, University of Memphis Department of History), who provided editorial assistance for this project.
