The topics of the four sessions are: The Southern Woman, New Sources in Women's History, Incorporating Women's History, and Women in the Workforce. One additional research recording documents an interview with Dr. Herbert Gutman. The exact date and location in which this interview took place is unknown [c. late 1970s]. Three cassettes are from Women Themselves radio broadcasts. These productions highlight the lives and social contributions of Mary Antin, Sarah and Angelina Grimke, and Jane Hunter. One cassette is from a National Public Radio broadcast series entitled Options, in which correspondent Susan Stamberg interviews writer and feminist Tillie Olsen.
