Students Contribute to Crowdsourced Database

Undergraduate students in Dr. Michelle Nickerson's "Rebels and Reformers" class recently contributed entries to the Biographical Database of Militant Suffragists, 1913-1920. This is a crowdsourced database that is part of Women and Social Movements in the United States, an online resource from Binghamton University for scholars of US History and women's history. Looking forward to the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment in 2020, the editors are compiling a database of women's suffrage activists, including biographical sketches of Black Woman Suffragists and supporters of the National Woman’s Party and the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Dr. Nickerson's students had an exciting opportunity to participate in this project! For more information about the project, or to participate in the crowdsourcing effort, please email Tom Dublin at Binghamton University.
