      Primary Sources of the Women's Movement

      Availability: 
      Resource Type: 
      Description: 

      In December 1961, President John F. Kennedy appointed Eleanor Roosevelt to chair the President’s Commission on the Status of Women, a bipartisan organization whose goal was to examine discrimination against women in the United States and to study and make recommendations on policies designed to enable women to fulfill their potential in American life. When the President’s Commission disbanded in 1963, it issued a series of final reports documenting, among other topics, labor policies and practices relating to women, educational opportunities available to women, the legal status of women in American law, and services available to women in the realms of training, counseling, and child care. In addition, the commission recommended that states and localities establish their own commissions on the status of women to continue research and advocacy to promote the equality of women in all aspects of American social and political life. Today, there are approximately 270 state and local women’s commissions around the United States.

      These federal, state, and local commissions have produced a wealth of primary materials documenting conditions in the lives of American women over the second half of the twentieth century. Reports and publications issued by these commissions provide information at a level of depth that is not common amongst other primary materials available for this time period. However, these publications have not been widely accessible, and never before have they been made searchable. Our goal with Primary Sources of the Women's Movement, 1960 to present is to compile in one place, for the first time, the complete text of every report on the status of women issued by these bodies during this time period. When complete, it will provide 75,000 pages of materials documenting women’s issues over more than four decades in all fifty states.

      Includes the full text of 312 reports and publications issued by commissions in more than thirty states.
