Agents of Social Change On-line Exhibit and Lesson PLans Now Available
The Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College is pleased to announce an on-line exhibit and several lesson plans drawn from its Agents of Social Change collections. These collections include the papers of Mary Metlay Kaufman, Dorothy Kenyon, Constance Baker Motley, Jessie Lloyd O'Connor, Frances Fox Piven and Gloria Steinem as well as the records of the National Congress of Neighborhood Women and the Women's Action Alliance. The lesson plans, directed at middle and high school students, make use of both the text-based documents and visual images that can be found at the curriculum portion of the Web site and also within the on-line exhibit. These new resources highlight women's part in the multiple struggles for social change that span the 20th century including labor, socialism, civil liberties, peace, racial justice, urban reform, welfare rights, and women's rights. Processing of these collections was made possible in part by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
