    "hostility, invisibility and the feeling of being an outsider are still realities for many undergraduate and graduate women" - crazy since females now outnumber males, but proportional representation does not tell us about women's lives lived.

Carnegie library - eNotes.com Reference - 1 views

  • Beginning in the late 19th century, women's clubs organized in the United States, and were critical in identifying the need for libraries, as well as organizing for their construction and long-term financial support through fundraising and lobbying government bodies.[1] Women's clubs were instrumental in the founding of 75-80 percent of the libraries in the United States.[2] Carnegie's grants were catalysts for library construction based on organizing by women's clubs.
  • Under segregation black people were generally denied access to public libraries in the Southern United States. Rather than insisting on his libraries being racially integrated, he funded separate libraries for African Americans. For example, at Houston he funded a separate Colored Carnegie Library because black people were prohibited from using the "white" Carnegie Library there.[4]
  • This coincided with the rise of women's clubs in the post-Civil War period, which were most responsible for organizing efforts to establish libraries, including long-term fundraising and lobbying within their communities to support operations and collections.[6] They led the establishment of 75-80 percent of the libraries in communities across the country.[7]
  •  
    In researching the segregation of public libraries, I also found that during the establish of the Carnegie libraries spurred the creation of many women's groups throughout the country in the late 19th century. These women's group have taken off and continued throughout history.

International Federation of Professional Business Women - 0 views

  •  
    This the offical website for the group and explains the mission and the values of the group as a whole. It also offers history on the creation of the group and what the group is currently involved with today. I found it extremely intresting that a Kentucky women born before women had the right to vote could make such a huge impact not only on a state level or a nation wide level, but on an international level, like Lena Phillips was able to accomplish in her lifetime.

Celia's Land: A Historical Novel - by Georgia Davis Powers - 1 views

  •  
    Powers turned her attention to her family genealogy, trying to find out more about her great-aunt Celia Mudd, who was born into slavery but eventually inherited the rural Kentucky farm in Nelson County on which she spent all her life. Powers found a 1902 will in which Sam Lancaster, whose father had bought the farm, left all 500 acres to Georgia's Aunt Celia. Lancaster's surviving brother sued and the case went to Kentucky's highest court, yet most newspapers declined to report about it. After winning the case Celia Mudd become a local philanthropist. Powers wrote up this family history as a novel.

The University of Louisville's Women's Center - 0 views

  •  
    I really liked what the University of Louisville was doing to try to impower the lives of the women students and the women living in Jefferson County. The goal of the Women's Center is to promote equality between men and women, increase the self reliance of women and to display and demonstrate everything that women do for society. The goal is to change the mindset of both men and women who are living in a different era and to show that women are capable of accomplishing anything that a man is capable of accomplishing.
