Answer

You can find secondary sources - books or  articles that present a scholar's commentary, criticism, or analysis - using UST OneSearch.  OneSearch will search our catalog and our databases for books and scholarly articles on your topic.  

Because this is a broad topic, you may have to try several different searches to cover everything.  A few different searches  you might try are "women in 1920", "women's roles 1820", "women and education 1860", etc.  You can try searching for different decades, different aspects of women's rights (education, voting rights), and different geographic areas (Great Britain, U.S.) depending on your research interests.

You can also use the options along the left side of the search results page to focus  your search.  Use the options to limit to books or peer-reviewed articles, adjust the date range, and search by subject.  

Also see our UST OneSearch Help page and our guide on finding peer-reviewed articles for more tips. 

Please feel free to let me know if you have more questions.
