Rethinking American Feminism, 1948-1977

A three-week, hybrid institute for 30 K-12 teachers on the history of feminism in the middle of the twentieth century.

The New-York Historical Society proposes Level II summer institute that will convene 30 teachers in grades K-12 and 19 guest scholars, filmmakers, and activists to explore the history of feminism in 20th century America. This hybrid institute will fulfill three weeks of work over several months. It will include two weeks in person at N-YHS over the summer, virtual evening sessions in the fall, and a culminating virtual weekend in January 2023. Building on N-YHS’s Center for Women’s History and web-based curriculum, Women & the American Story, Rethinking American Feminism: 1948-1977 will empower teachers to incorporate the voices of a diverse range of women into their instruction on 20th century US history. By studying and celebrating the contributions of women across many categories, teachers will be better equipped to break down the stereotype of a single narrative of women’s history and help students—particularly female students—see themselves in the past.
