An Activist Tradition: AU and WCL's Founding Women
Throughout the nineteenth century, women worked to carve out a space for themselves as political actors. Driven by their ideals, they founded institutions such as American University and the Washington College of Law to shape the world according to their principles.
This site, in conjunction with the Humanities Truck exhibit of the same name, seeks to share some of the documents available in the American University Archives and the Washington College of Law Archives that tell these women's stories.
