The Library of Congress is an incomparable resource for research into women's history, which is especially appropriate to study in March, Women's History Month. You can get started with "American Women: A Library of Congress Guide for the Study of Women's History and Culture in the United States." An overview of the guide was published in the Library of Congress "Information Bulletin," and you can purchase the guide and other Selected Library Publications from our online Sales Shop.
The Library of Congress Web site features profiles of American women pioneers such as Amelia Earhart, Jane Addams, Dorothea Lange, Pocahontas, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, Hannah Arendt, as well as books and pamphlets and photographs and prints documenting the women's suffrage movement in America.
