Re: H-SHGAPE Question of the Week: Gender and Gilded Age and Progressive Era

To Elisabeth Perry, I too have found issues pertaining to women on separate pages while researching. Out of the three main papers in Newport, The Newport Herald addressed womens' concerns and topics. The other two briefly gave mention stated in their local happenings section.

To Janet C. Olson, thank you for mentioning the Union Signal. I certainly was unaware of it existence. I like that it discussed international news. I lean towards transnational historical contexts if I can in my research.

Thank you to everyone.
