Minnijean Brown Trickey wore this graduation dress, which she designed herself, while graduating from New Lincoln School, a prestigious school known for its innovative approaches to education. She was one of the Little Rock Nine who were at the forefront of integrating public schools in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Minnijean and her fellow classmates enrolled in September 1957. Initially, they were barred from entering the school by an angry mob and the Arkansas National Guard. This incident became known as the Little Rock Integration Crisis. The students finally entered the school for their first day of classes on September 25, 1957.

On this day in history, September 24th 1946, Clark Clifford and George Elsey, military advisers to US President Harry Truman, give the president a top-secret report on the Soviet Union that first recommends the containment policy. The United States' policy of containment entailed blocking as much as possible the expansion of Communism and the influence of the Soviet Union outside its post-WWII boundaries. The policy of containment marked a middle ground between détente (reconciliation) and rollback (aggressive attack), two Cold War strategies that were employed at other times during the conflict. The containment policy was first truly articulated and tested with the United States' actions in Greece and Turkey in 1947. Great Britain did not have the resources to continue supporting anti-Communist forces in the two nations, so the US agreed, as part of its containment policy, to shoulder the burden and give the necessary materials required by the anti-Communist forces in the two countries to fight the Communist advance. This set a precedent that saw the United States directly or indirectly aid anti-Communist forces in many countries throughout the world under the same pressure of Communism's expansion.

A century ago, an American legend was born. Phyllis Diller made history as one of the first American female comics to grace the comedy scene as a household name. She paved the way for the modern comediennes you know and love. In celebration of Diller's legacy, we want to hear from you — who are your favorite female comics?

On this day in history, September 23rd 1779, John Paul Jones, aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard with four other small ships, defeats two British escort vessels protecting a large merchant convoy at the Battle of Flamborough Head off the coast of Yorkshire in the North Sea. The Battle is one of the most famous naval engagements in American history and Jones' response to the English challenge to surrender has become almost legendary: "I have not yet begun to fight!" The three and a half hour long gun battle took a toll on both sides and after capturing the British ships, Jones' own sunk only a few days later due to damages sustained during the fight. Jones' victory so close to England only served to enhance the international reputation he had already gained for himself by raiding and sailing for the rebelling colonies.

From the scrapbook of Anne Koch Voigt, an American nurse who served in Vietnam. The photograph shows her receiving an Army Commendation medal for meritorious service shortly before leaving Vietnam in December, 1969. After receiving the poem pictured here from a medic, Anne wrote "keep the faith" on her hat. 
Her story is included in my upcoming book Courageous Women of the Vietnam War and she gave me permission to use the materials in her scrapbook.

This is the famous Fliers and Explorers Globe owned by the American Geographical Society. It is a prized artifact bearing the signatures of over 80 notable explorers. It was proudly signed by my biographical subject, Louise Arner Boyd in 1937. #ags #globe #explorenorth #explorer #astronaut #strongwomen #womenempowerment #polar #greenland #arctic #antarctica #history #nonfiction #biography #womenshistory

Kristin here. @thegrungewitch is busy today wrapping up some things for her fabulous wedding of the year, so I decided to visit my husband's place of employment today and learn a bit about Massachusetts industrial history. Here you can see the weave room. Women were working under pretty dangerous conditions that could cause respiratory health issues and bodily harm in some cases. One woman had her hair caught in one of these belts, was lifted off the floor at such an accelerated rate that her skull cracked on the ceiling, and she later died. This is also a cotton mill, an industry that began on the backs of slaves in this country. Chilling to see the industry as it was and reflect on the sacrifices made by people of color, immigrants, and women in America.

Men were viewed as being more intellectual and tougher than women but less moral. It was widely accepted that men had to be ruthless in order to survive in the industrial world. There was no room in business for squeamishness or impassivity. This was one of the reasons why the ruthlessness of the great monopolists was accepted. At this time there was a growing view that Christianity was becoming to feminized, with women being the protectors of morality and virtue. Churches in an effort to reinvigorate churches developed the concept of masculine Christianity. This involved transforming Jesus into a tough guy who was out in the sun all day. The YMCA which was found in the United Kingdom back in the 1840,s spread very rapidly in the United States. The idea was to institute Christian athletic programs.

Typically immigrant women mainly Irish and German served as domesticate servants. As the cities grew women also began to take teaching positions particularly for primary schools. Women also entered the nursing profession as healthcare began to rise as an industry, women mainly Jewish Immigrant began to take a leading role in the clothing industry. With the rise of department stores women also began to take sales positions. With the rise of monopolistic corporation secretary position positions now became available for women too.

Beginning in the 1870’s women in the cities were becoming consumers on their own for the first time. The first Department stores were being developed in the United States. With the department store shopping became a leisurely activity for the majority of people and not merely a chore.
Most women who worked during this period worked as domesticate servants and on the farms. One of the first things middleclass Americans of this period did was hire domesticate servants. Working as a domesticate servant was laborious because everything had to be done by hand. There were laundry washers, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, electric or gas stoves. The stoves were all wood fired.

Stages of Hysteria

During this time doctors were forming ideas about the wellness of women especially during pregnancy. The idea was that a pregnant woman who became too excitable would become insane and the mother would then pass her insanity to her children weakening future generations. The medical community looked toward the seen but then unknown hormonal change pregnant women endure. Citing it has strange and troubling. They also pointed to pregnancy cravings as being unnatural and worrisome.

Sarah Hale
Literature was created to advise women on to behave and meet society expectations. Sarah Hale's “The Women’s Record” published on 1854 is an encyclopedia of acceptable and exemplary mothers throughout history. George Washington’s mother is highly praised in the book. Hales argues that the great men of history were only able to achieve greatness because of the environment created by their mothers. Mothers are the ones who should be praised in society. This was done as a protective measure against marginalizing the role of women. The role of mothers was emphasized during infancy.

On the farms life continued pretty much as before which farm upkeep duties split along gender lines. In the cities there was a much stronger separation of jobs between the sexes. This was often dressed up in pseudo-science language. Many of prominent medical professionals were interested in solving the gender question. In the modern era we have a consensus that women should not be excluded from professions and political rights because of their gender. We emphasize the similarities between men and women in all aspects of life. Back then the differences were emphasized and the prominent suffragettes or women’s rights advocates did the same. Women were regarded as the nurturer and the moral guardian of children. Child raising was the center of their universe.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony

Those women who had to work aspired to one day not have to work. The majority of medical professionals in the United States had the consensus that higher education led to hysteria in women. They also believed political rights would make women masculine and threaten gender boundaries. Early suffragettes tended to align with this view Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony argued that women would tone down the animosity of politics and provide a nurturing atmosphere for politics. This is what was happening in the cities which were rapidly growing and becoming more influential.

In the late 19th century there was a very strong belief in the difference between men and women. There was a belief that both sexes had their own spheres of influence. Men were muscular rational and intellectual. Those attributes led men to build an agricultural, commercial and industrial society. Women on the other hand were seen as delicate and intuitive and therefore should stay in the home. Women were seen as the beacons of peace love and security. This theory only applied to upper class women only. Most families were too poor to not have all capable members work.
