Daughters Of Liberty: The Women Who Fought In The American Revolution, Kimberly Trenner 2016 American Public University System

Daughters Of Liberty: The Women Who Fought In The American Revolution, Kimberly Trenner

Saber and Scroll

While women may not have had a voice in politics during the American Revolution, they had a voice at home and they expressed their beliefs and fears. Women such as Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and Mercy Otis Warren were able to use the time with their husbands and their husband’s friends to aid in setting in motion the split from England. Other women called for boycotts of local merchants who were thought to be price gouging due to the war and limited supplies getting through from England. When open warfare broke out in 1775, many women chose to follow ...

Notable Women In Economics: Margaret G. Reid, Helen H. Jensen 2016 Iowa State University

Notable Women In Economics: Margaret G. Reid, Helen H. Jensen

Helen Jensen

Margaret G. Reid was an economic scholar whose solid empirical analysis and insight into the economics of household and consumer behavior produced the foundation of many important theoretical advances in economics. Her pioneering work on the economics of household production and use of time, the concept and measurement of permanent income, and the statistical analysis of demand for housing were major contributions to the development of economic science and survey work. She was named a Distinguished Fellow of the American Economics Association in 1980. Her death in late 1991 at the age of 96 marked the end of a long ...

York County Probate Records 1700-1800, Wendy E. Lucas 4505624, Noel D. Campbell

The Magazine of Early American Datasets (MEAD)

We organized this data set to investigate whether gender had a significant impact on how appraisers conducted probate court estate inventories. If society drew a distinction between a man’s world and his work and a woman’s world and her work, then it may have associated different goods with the different worlds. This could have created ‘men’s possessions’ and ‘women’s possessions,’ ascribing gender to material objects. Acting within this set of cultural assumptions, probate appraisers might have wittingly or unwittingly inventoried estates differently on the basis of female involvement with the estate.

We used the York County ...

Women Of The Incan Empire: Before And After The Conquest Of Peru, Sarah A. Hunt 2016 Southern Adventist Univeristy

Women Of The Incan Empire: Before And After The Conquest Of Peru, Sarah A. Hunt

Student Research

This paper contrasts the life of Incan women before and after the Spanish conquest of Peru by Pizarro. Spanish colonization of Peru had a significant, negative impact on Incan women, across social, economic, and religious sectors. Before the conquest, women held fairly complimentary, rather than subordinate roles to men in society. Spanish rule introduced a strict patriarchy, which reduced Incan women to second-class citizens. The Spanish exploited women within the economy, and destroyed the once revered female religious institutions. Examining women in conquest history provides an intimate look at gender and power relations, socio-economics, and the shifting familial and cultural ...


The Bodies, Minds, Desires And Scorn Of Britain's "Stepdaughters Of War", Alexandra J. Lightle 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Bodies, Minds, Desires And Scorn Of Britain's "Stepdaughters Of War", Alexandra J. Lightle

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This thesis revolves around Evadne Price’s novel, Not So Quiet… Stepdaughters of War, published in 1930 under the pen name Helen Zenna Smith. The book delves into the inner life of a young female driver in a voluntary ambulance corps in France during World War I. Throughout the novel the reader is witness to the hardships of young women who left their sheltered drawing rooms only to be plunged into the apocalyptic landscape of the Western Front. They were ill informed as to what they were volunteering for and they struggled desperately to cope with the heretofore unimagined carnage ...

The Tying Of The Ceremonial Wedding Thread: A Feminist Analysis Of “Ritual” And “Tradition” Among Syro-Malabar Catholics In India, Sonja Thomas 2016 Colby College

The Tying Of The Ceremonial Wedding Thread: A Feminist Analysis Of “Ritual” And “Tradition” Among Syro-Malabar Catholics In India, Sonja Thomas

Journal of Global Catholicism

This article presents a feminist analysis of patriarchy persisting in Catholicism of the Syro-Malabar rite in Kerala. The article specifically considers the impact of charismatic Catholicism on women of the Syro-Malabar rite and argues that it is important to interrogate this new face of religiosity in order to fully understand how certain rituals are allowed to change and be fluid, while others, especially concerning female sexuality, are enshrined as “tradition” which often restricts the parameters for women’s empowerment and may reinforce caste and patriarchal hegemonies preventing feminist solidarity across different religious- and caste-based groups.


Maria Susanna Cummins' London Letters: April 1860, Heidi LM Jacobs 2016 University of Windsor

Maria Susanna Cummins' London Letters: April 1860, Heidi Lm Jacobs

Heidi Jacobs

Within scholarship on Maria Susanna Cummins (1827-1866), there are two recurrent phrases: "author of the best-selling novel The Lamplighter" and "little is known about her life." Despite the early contextualization of Cummins by various scholars, most of the recent critical work on Cummins has centered on her first and best-known novel, The Lamplighter (1854). Very little critical attention has been paid to Cummins's life, her career as a publishing author, her lesser known novels, her periodical publications, and her archived letters. Written in the weeks preceding the publication in the United States and Britain of her third novel, El ...
