In honor of Women’s History Month, and as part of the Sex, Suffrage, Solidarities series by which we are marking the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, the Journal of American History has published the JAH Women’s History Index. 

The JAH Women’s History Index consists of every article of women’s history printed in the JAH since its inception as the Mississippi Valley Historical Review in 1914. The index, along with a brief note about our methodology, may be read here.

Katherine Turk, Associate Professor of History and Adjunct Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and author of Equality on Trial: Gender and Rights in the Modern American Workplace (2016), has curated an online issue of articles selected from the index. Entitled “Not Additive, but Transformative: Women and Gender in the Journal of American History,” the online issue is freely available through May 2020. We offer these materials as resources for readers who wish to learn more about women’s history and U.S. historiography more broadly.
