This collection of women’s history expands past the history of American women to account for the stories of women around the world who have and continue to build upon women’s advocacy efforts from the past. We hope that these stories will help you reflect upon the following questions: 

  • Which types of women’s stories are considered “historical,” and which are not? 
  • What does it mean for women to tell their own stories? 
  • How do new media and technology impact how women interact with the world over time? 
  • How does gender activism influence Internet activism, and vice versa? 
  • How do the eBooks in the Critical Theory Collection compare, contrast, or complement each other?
  • What do STEM fields need to change in order to integrate more women into their fields? 
  • Which advocacy efforts do you think are most commonly led by women, and why do you think that is? 
  • What do you see missing from this collection, and what do you wish you could learn more about?
