One hundred years ago this August, the General Assembly of Tennessee—the requisite thirty-sixth state—voted to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment, which then became part of the U.S. Constitution.

To promote critical reflection about this anniversary and its many complex legacies, the Journal of American History presents Sex, Suffrage, Solidarities: Centennial Reappraisals. This series will run throughout the year, offering research articles, special features, and reviews published across the JAH, the JAH Podcast, and Process: a blog for American history. Our hope is to provoke new questions about the Nineteenth Amendment and the political, economic, and cultural transformations surrounding it.

In that spirit, and in honor of Women’s History Month, we are pleased to publish the following index of every article of women’s history printed in this journal since its inception as the Mississippi Valley Historical Review in 1914. We offer the index, and its 154 entries, as resources for readers who wish to learn more about women’s history and the JAH’s role in the development of the field.

The index was created collaboratively by the JAH staff. In spare moments between regular production duties, our editors, graduate student editorial assistants, and undergraduate interns pored over back issues of the Journal. With few exceptions, we limited our search to articles, an imprecise category that has evolved over time. For the sake of manageability, we purposely excluded thousands of book, movie, and exhibition reviews. To maintain a focus on women’s history, we also opted to omit many excellent works on closely related topics such as manhood and masculinity or gender more broadly. Still, each staff member had to make tough decisions about what material to add and what to leave off. We consider the index a work in progress, we apologize for any inadvertent omissions, and we welcome recommendations for addition.

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