Women and the Civil Rights Movement (Coursera)

Learn about women’s roles in the U.S. civil rights struggles of the 1890s to the 1990s.

This course examines the U.S. civil rights movement from the vantage point of women, considering both women’s involvement in the legal campaigns and political protests and the impact of civil rights struggles on women’s status and identity. Taking a “long civil rights movement” perspective, we begin in the late nineteenth century and consider events, organizations, and personalities through the twentieth century.
