Clio Visualizing History: News and Reviews about Our Projects
Click! The Ongoing Feminist Revolution
Click! was reviewed in the Journal of American History by Agatha Beins of Texas Woman’s University. In her first sentence, Beins describes Click! as “a rich and wide-ranging exploration of U.S. women’s history from 1940 to the present.” The “wealth of information and resources” presented in the exhibit, she writes, leaves her “humbled by the effort it must have taken to construct this site” and “impressed by how well its creators have curated it.” Biens praises the exhibit as easy to navigate and says she “enjoyed following the default path by simply selecting ‘next page’ to move to another chapter and by wandering nonlinearly and nonchronologically through items that piqued” her interests. After reading the “Politics and Social Movements” section, Beins concludes that the exhibit is successful in “foregrounding women of color and showing them as powerful actors and activist.” This section “builds a foundation for the activism required to accomplish transformation that subsequent sections explore.” Overall, Beins writes, “the site aims to complicate women’s history by recognizing that power and privilege depend not just on one’s gender but on the dynamic confluence of multiple identity categories.” Beins concludes that the scholarly work evident in all parts of the exhibit “makes it a Web site I would trust and recommend, especially to lay people and students looking for a place to start a research project.” Read the full review in the Journal of American History, Volume 104, Issue 4, March 2018, pages 1099-1100.
