From the Ground Up Building Archival Sources for the History of Women in Las Vegas

Document Type



How do you "write women back into history" when no sources exist to do so? How do you define a gender analysis of the presumably most sexed-up city in the United States when you cannot compare the historical experiences of men and women? Those were the questions I faced a number of years ago in Las Vegas as I began to teach women's history.
