In my opinion, the most useful database is the Gender Studies data base. My project explores how the dialogue between the pro-women’s suffrage and anti-suffrage movements shaped conception of gender in early 20th century America. Both sides used various political cartoons and other forms of visual ephemera, such as postcards, to sway the public to support their causes. Therefore, this database is helpful because its contents already contain commentary on gender in a certain period or how it changed overtime. In comparison to other databases and digital archives, performing research is a much more streamlined process because I do not have to search for the words like gender”, “masculinity”, or “femininity” because most of the articles contain arguments about these subjects. Exploring this database allows me to gain a better picture of what has been argued about this topic and what remains unexplored. In this way, simple keyword searches in this database have been significantly helpful to me as I further determine the baseline for gender perception in the 1910s and determine how it changed after the 19th amendment’s ratification in 1919.
