About Me

Broadly speaking, I am interested in intellectual and cultural history, feminist consciousness, and women’s activism. My research focuses predominantly on American women and social reform, sexual modernism, American labor feminism, progressivism, and liberalism. Similarly, I am interested in the historical contributions of women as active participants in shaping cultural and political landscapes and whose public lives troubled popular conceptions of gender, femininity, and womanhood. I work to foreground the contributions of labor feminists in shaping contemporary feminist thought and the role of the women’s networks in building cross-class solidarity.
