NEW JERSEY WOMEN’S HISTORY is a resource for students, teachers, and all interested people who want to know more about the history of women in New Jersey. Because New Jersey women’s history is a young field, it is constantly growing and changing. This website will do the same, so it can keep up with new information and research and update existing information.

This website was developed with financial assistance from a project grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State, and through the Discover NJ History License Plate Fund for Heritage Tourism Grant Program of the New Jersey Historic Trust. This website is managed by the Alice Paul Institute.
