About Me

For over twenty-five years, I have written about women’s activism.  I focus on a wide range of movements including feminist artists, the role of culture in women’s liberation, civil rights, women’s suffrage and peace activism. My first book explored motherhood and feminism online.  My more recent work involves digital history and digital humanities approaches to feminist activism, as well as explorations of gender in Wikipedia and the ethics of digital archives.

I sit on the American Historical Association’s Digital History Working Group and on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Women’s Histoty. In the past I served as the digital history projects editor for Women and Social Movements and as a consultant for NITLE, the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education.    As a participant in the larger digital humanities community, I frequently consult and comment on digital humanities and the liberal arts, digital pedagogy, and digital history projects.

After receiving my doctorate in women’s history from the University of California at Los Angeles, I pursued an alternative academic career for six years, first as the assistant director of the women’s leadership program at Mount St Mary’s College in Los Angeles, where I also taught women’s studies and history, and then as the Director of the Women’s Center at William Paterson University of New Jersey, where I held a joint appointment as an assistant professor of history. I am now an associate professor of history at Rosemont College in Philadelphia where I also teach women’s and gender studies.
