This collection contains manifestos, speeches, essays, and other materials documenting various aspects of the Women's Movement in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s. The Women's Liberation Movement refers to a series of campaigns for reforms on issues such as reproductive rights, domestic violence, and equal pay. Feminist print culture, such as the examples provided in the collection, supported and sustained the Women¹s Movement and connect it to other movements for social justice. The original version of this digital collection was produced in 1997 by then Duke Women's Studies Archivist, Ginny Daley along with then Duke professor Anne Valk to support assignments in her class on the Social History of American Women. Rosalyn Baxandall and Linda Gordon also contributed to material selection in conjunction with their publication of their book, Dear Sisters: Dispatches From The Women's Liberation Movement (Basic Books, 2001). The newly launched collection includes image scans of all documents and is full-text searchable. Photographs, flyers, planning documents, and responses to the 1968 and 1969 Miss America pageant protests, which launched Women's Liberation in the public consciousness, have been added to the collection.
