A wealth of material on diverse aspects of women's history is in this collection of 25 titles dating from the mid-19th century to the 1930s. American feminism-its roots and many of its branches-is a major theme in titles such as Susan B. Anthony's The Revolution and Margaret Sanger's Woman Rebel. Women's role in the labor movement is the focus of Life and Labor (Chicago, 1911-1921), The Ladies' Garment Worker (New York, 1910-1918), and Woman Worker (London, 1916-1921). Politically moderate or nonpolitical periodicals are represented by The Club Woman, magazine of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (Boston, 1897-1904), and The Keystone (Charleston, S.C., 1899-1913). Long before the unions arrived, Lowell, Massachusetts, woolen mill employees produced a literary monthly, The Lowell Offering (1840-1845), the oldest title in the collection. And on the right there is The Woman Patriot (Washington, 1919-1932), which announced itself "dedicated to the defense of womanhood, motherhood, the family, and the state. Against suffrage, feminism, and socialism." This collection gives students of women's history-its social movements, economics, politics, and literature-a truly varied selection of source documents.
