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 Also, because you’ll be handling real historical documents, make sure your hands are clean.
