Women and Social Movements database available this month.

To celebrate Women's History Month, the database Women and Social Movements in the United States is available online free of charge until the end of March. This resource has some 3600 documents.

  • Biographical sketch of Harriet Prescott Spofford, known in mysterydom for "In a Cellar" (1859) and "Mr. Furbush" (1865)
