Cohen, Jane Whitehouse. "Women's Political Power in Maryland, 1920-1964." Ph.D. diss., Catholic University of America, 1993.
Annotations / Notes: Challenges the traditional interpretation that women were politically dormant between the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment and the start of the women's liberation movement. Women played an active and effective role in Maryland politics in this period. Twenty-seven women served in the state legislature. Others lobbied for social legislation, led reform movements, joined partisan and nonpartisan organizations, and worked to expand women's legal rights. All of this was accomplished by working with the male political leaders who controlled the power structure.

Conger, Vivian Leigh Bruce. "'Being Weak of Body But Firm of Mind and Memory': Widowhood in Colonial America, 1630-1750." Ph.D. diss., Cornell University, 1994.
Annotations / Notes: Widowhood was a normal part of colonial life. Although encouraged for younger widows and for all women in the Chesapeake region before 1700, rapid remarriage was not automatic. Widows functioned as both mother and father, including representing family interests in the community. As land became more scarce, widowhood increased and widows left more property to their daughters.
