Women, Gender, and Sexuality in American History


Acquiring Editor: Dawn Durante
Series Editors: Susan Cahn, Wanda A. Hendricks, and Deborah Gray White

Women, Gender, and Sexuality in American History is a series that seeks to publish scholarship that makes significant contributions to women's, gender, and sexuality history. Established in 1985 as the Women in American History series, the series has broadened to reflect the current state of the field. The series editors seek books that are historical, or are interdisciplinary with a historical focus, and the series will feature a variety of topics related to women, gender and sexual difference, sexual politics, and LBGTQ history in the United States and across the Americas. The series editors welcome projects that capture the experiences, activism, and group dynamics of women across race, region, class, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, and other categories of identity and difference in all historical contexts, including indigenous cultures and recent decades.
