Works Cited

The following is a list of the resources which I found most useful and would suggest for further reading. I would like to thank the many women I interviewed for this project. They are the spirit and life behind ideas and images that appear here. Also a thank you to Alan Howard for encouraging me to make a statement, the Electronic Text center for answering the same three questions I forgot the answer to every week, and of course my American Studies classmates -- what fond memories of the early morning hours in Thorton Stacks!
