About HerStory



The HerStory Scrapbook includes more than 900 articles, letters, and editorials, published by The New York Times from 1917 to 1920, about the women who were fighting for, and against, the right to vote.

How HerStory links work: The links to The New York Times open in a new browser window or a new browser tab, if your browser is set up for automatic tabbed browsing. To avoid opening too many windows, the next time you click on a New York Times link, the webpage will appear in the window or tab that is already open, behind the HerStory Scrapbook webpage.

Note for students of history: The dates in the scrapbook reflect the dates the articles were published in The New York Times. In order to give the HerStory Scrapbook a "you-are-there" feel, the text introducing each article is generally written in the present tense. However, the actual event usually occurred one or more days before the article was written.
Read the review of the HerStory Scrapbook by the American Historical Association (AHA). The AHA also highlighted the HerStory Scrapbook in a list of digitized newspaper resources.


The HerStory Scrapbook is recommended by the National Women's History Project. In 1987, the National Women's History Project convinced the US Congress to designate March as Women's History Month.
