    st wave: Maria Stewart, Lucrettia Mott, Lucy Stone, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Alice Paul,

    Milholland.
  2. Research and write about the two women you chose from the lists above
    Give us basic biographical information; when and where she was born. Try to provide a detailed
    and complete picture of her life in the era in which she lived. If possible, this should include:
    family dynamic, marital status, religious background and religious affiliation, race, class etc. Try
    to paint a vivid picture of the political, economic, social circumstances and historical events that
    influenced and shaped her life, including race, religion, sexual orientation, etc (i.e. her social
    locations).
    Describe her contributions. What role did she play in the women’s movement? How did her work
    shape the lives of future women? How did her contributions impact your life directly or
    indirectly? How does learning about her contributions, her political and feminist ideology etc.
    impact you?
    Relate to her as a living woman. Consider this assignment as an excavation of sorts; you are
    resurrecting a lost piece of history and breathing new life into this woman. What is she like? How
    do you relate to her? Do you have anything in common? How are you two different? How might
    the usual ways we categorize and separate one another become unimportant in the larger context?
    How does “getting to know her” impact your perception of women, women’s history, feminism,
    and feminists?
