Without knowing exactly what you want to know about Uncle Tom's Cabin and women's movements, may I suggest you try our American Experience LibGuide at and click on the U.S. History tab? Here you will see many high quality resources. Scrolling down the center of the page you will see Pre-Revolution through Civil War: Primary Documents and Web Sites. This section contains Uncle Tom's Cabin & American Culture, an authoritative website that includes information on the women's rights movement.

Additionally, in the box Find History Articles, I suggest you search JSTOR using the search term: "uncle tom's cabin" AND "women's rights" . Keep the quotation marks and the word and, as they will focus your results. To quickly scan the 63 results, click on the magnifying glass at the end of each title. This will show you the sentences in the article which use your search terms. Also search Humanities International Complete. The search term "uncle tom's cabin" AND women AND rights turned up a chapter in a book (Preemancipation Activism) that appears relevant.

You can also search our library catalog on the U.S. History page of the LibGuide. We have a number of books in the library on Uncle Tom's Cabin. If you need more information we will be glad to email you scanned pages from the books (within copyright limitations, of course). Please let us know by responding to the reply link in the email.
