Weaver, Diane E. Maryland Women and the Transformation of Politics, 1890s-1930. Ph.D. diss., University of Maryland at College Park, 1992.
Annotation / Notes: Women went from being outsiders to political players by bringing their issues to the attention of local and state government. Working together, women activists and male politicians broadened the responsibility of government and established a public role for women. The suffrage movement in Maryland was an extension of and expanded this activism. While independently pursuing their own agenda, black women frequently parterned with white women activists and male politicians to pursue common objectives.
