New Research Guides Celebrate Women Changemakers

As part of its yearlong initiative to Explore America’s Changemakers, the Library of Congress has created numerous research guides highlighting women’s contributions to many fields, including science, business, civil rights, suffrage, and more.  These guides combine a focus on the Library’s diverse collections, both digital and physical, along with research strategies and external resources selected by the Library’s subject specialists. 

Of special interest are a series of research guides related to the national commemoration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage and the Library’s newest exhibition entitled “Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote” :

Additional guides in the “American Women” series focus on materials found in the Library’s collections:

Continue to explore women’s many contributions in history by exploring our guides under the subjects “American Women History,” “Gender and Women’s Studies,” and “Individuals.”  All guides from the Library are available on our Research Guides home page.
