A Crash Course in US Feminist History

The following three videos will give you a crash course in the political and historical contexts for first, second, and third wave feminism in the United States that we’ll be discussing today and next week.

In addition, for next Friday’s class, we will be meeting in the Purdue Women’s Archives, top floor of HSSE Library in Stewart Center. For this trip, please make sure that you bring no food or drink into the archives (a lunch or bottle of water that remains in your book bag is fine – but leave it there during our trip). Also, because you’ll be handling real historical documents, make sure your hands are clean.

  1. Hi there! I’m an instruction and outreach librarian at UC Merced, and I’m working on a research guide for our university’s Women’s Programs in the Office of Student Life. Your blog and these series of videos, in particular, have been helpful while I continue building out resources. I was also tickled to see that some categories I’ve mapped out are included in your blog! For example, I also have student resources and organizations in the works. (I went a little overboard when I thought I was going to add individual podcasts, but I so appreciae the blogs you have listed. Thank you for such a thoughtfully designed blog–a librarian’s dream!
