Query From Sue Shrems email@example.com 07 March 1996
I am presently working on women's conservative movement in the 1920s. In particular, how this movement seems to be a backlash against the direction that feminists were moving women and society in this time period.
My focus in on women in Oklahoma. The political spectrum in Oklahoma ran from a small group of socialists to over 50 women of the Klan organizations throughout the state. In between these extreme ends are women's organizations that held conservative ideals.
I am interested in any information that helps to bring into focus the conservative women's movement of the 1920s. Thanks in advance.
