The topic of Women's Rights could be construed to span many of the resources in the collections of the Baylor Libraries and the Institute for Oral History. For the purposes of this resource, our collections focus upon legislative collections that are part of our Baylor Collections of Political Materials. Even within this range the Baylor Libraries have a wealth of resources that bring a broad perspective on the question of women's rights in the context of U.S. politics.

More information about Women's Rights can be found in various collections throughout the Baylor Collections of Political Materials at the W. R. Poage Legislative Library.
