The impact of women's political activity throughout American history has been the focus of increasing scholarly attention over the past two decades. For the most part, however, the scholarship has been grounded on national leaders and on national women's organizations. This new series of microfilm publications, Grassroots Women's Organizations, expands the research possibilities in American women's history through the selection of well-chosen organizational records on local women's organizations from the 19th and 20th centuries. Women's Suffrage in Wisconsin: Part 1: Records of the Wisconsin Woman Suffrage Association, 1892-1925 Through the wealth of letters and reports from local suffrage leaders in Wisconsin, this collection provides a panoramic view of the struggle for women_s political rights at the state and local levels. Executive Board minutes of the Wisconsin Woman Suffrage Association (WWSA), a merger of the Woman_s Suffrage Association and the Political Equality League, cover the crucial years from 1911 to 1920, and copious scrapbooks supplement the correspondence by detailing local and statewide events. There is also a significant amount of correspondence with national suffragist leaders such as Anna Howard Shaw, president of the National American Women_s Suffrage Association, that depicts the relationship of WWSA with the national movement.
