Women of the Republic views the American Revolution through women's eyes.

U.S. history as women's history : new feminist essays( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State formation, power, and knowledge have not traditionally been understood as the subjects of women's history, but they are the themes that permeate this book. Individually and together, the essays explore how gender serves to legitimize particular constructions of power and knowledge and to meld these into accepted practice and state policy. They show how the study of women's history has moved from the discovery of women to an evaluation of social processes and institutions
No constitutional right to be ladies : women and the obligations of citizenship by Linda K Kerber( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Struggles over women's suffrage and the ERA have publicized how much women have related their struggle for equality to rights. That the history of citizens' obligations is also linked to gender has been less understood." "In this landmark book, the historian Linda K. Kerber opens up this important and neglected subject for the first time. She begins during the Revolution, when married women did not have the same obligation as their husbands to be "patriots," and ends in the present, when men and women still have different obligations to serve in the armed forces. She also sets her historical imagination to work on the vastly different issues of men's and women's obligations to refrain from vagrancy, to pay taxes, and to serve on juries." "By turning upside down the traditional paradigm of women's history as one of rights, Kerber shows us that there is no "right" to be excused from the obligations of citizenship. Hers is an invaluable new way of understanding the history of women in America - and American history more generally."--Jacket

Intended for use in preservice teacher education programs, this unit provides an overview of the role that women have played as educators. The publication is designed to help future teachers become knowledgeable about issues of sexism and skilled in approaches to alleviating this problem in schools. The sections are chronological. Section 1, "Colonial Women as Educators, 1600-1776," examines early private schools and differences in educating females and males. Section 2, "Educating Citizens for the Republic, 1776-1860," discusses the development of mass education, the growth of the female seminary, the role of women in teaching, women's rights, and educating black children in antebellum America. The third section, "The Reshaping of Mass Public Education, 1865-1900," deals with the feminization of teaching, vocational education, women's access to higher education, the social settlement house, and the rise of the kindergarten. In section 4, "Teaching as a Career in the Twentieth Century, 1900-1960," teachers' organizations, progressive education, new opportunities for black women and racial integration of public schools are discussed. The fifth section, "Toward Non-Sexist Schools, 1960-1980," deals with sex discrimination in teaching and changes in educational policy. Section 6 contains a brief summary. Discussion questions and related activities are provided at the conclusion of the publication. Ninety-seven references are included. (Rm)

Labor & desire : women's revolutionary fiction in depression America by Paula Rabinowitz( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This critical, historical, and theoretical study looks at a little-known group of novels written during the 1930s by women who were literary radicals. Arguing that class consciousness was figured through metaphors of gender, Paula Rabinowitz challenges the conventional wisdom that feminism as a discourse disappeared during the decade. She focuses on the ways in which sexuality and maternity reconstruct the "classic" proletarian novel to speak about both the working-class woman and the radical female intellectual." "Two well-known novels bracket this study: Agnes Smedley's Daughters of Earth (1929) and Mary McCarthy's The Company She Keeps (1942). In all, Rabinowitz surveys more than forty novels of the period, many largely forgotten. Discussing these novels in the contexts of literary radicalism and of women's literary tradition, she reads them as both cultural history and cultural theory. Through a consideration of the novels as a genre, Rabinowitz is able to theorize about the interrelationship of class and gender in American culture. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
