Project MUSE Releases a New “MUSE in Focus” Curated Collection Commemorating the 19th Amendment, All Content Free to Access
From Project MUSE
In its continuing effort to provide context and share relevant content related to current issues, Project MUSE launches a new MUSE in Focus on its digital platform today commemorating the 19th Amendment. With participation from its wide range of publishing partners, the content examines the history of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States and how the struggle for political equity continues today.
MUSE in Focus is an ongoing series of curated resources, comprising content from participating publishers across Project MUSE’s broad corpus, designed to contribute interdisciplinary, scholarly context to current events and issues. It’s MUSE’s belief that as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in the United States, we also must acknowledge that the 19th Amendment’s passage was just one victory in a much larger and ongoing political struggle for women and other marginalized peoples demanding their democratic rights.
“MUSE in Focus: Commemorating the 19th Amendment” is a curated selection of content from Project MUSE’s publishing partners and offers a broad range of perspectives about the history of the women’s suffrage movement in the US and its continued relevance to the ongoing struggle for true democracy around the globe.
