I have been a history teacher (students aged 11 to 18) for 25 years. I first became interested in women's history when I began studying the struggle for universal suffrage. When I first started my Spartacus Educational website in 1997 I was determined to record as much as I could about these amazing women who sacrificed so much in their attempt to gain the vote. I am therefore the author of Emancipation of Women and Women's Suffrage in the United States.

I am the Head of History in an inner city boys 11-16 comprehensive and have been teaching for 11 years. I have been interested in Women's History for many years and studied the history of the First and Second wave women's movement at University. The thesis that I wrote for my M.A. was about the Suffragettes and specifically a small organisation called the Jewish League for Women Suffrage.

In 1994, I established a secure, online bookselling service, Naomi Symes Books, which supplies academics, academic libraries, collectors and history enthusiasts worldwide. We specialise in out-of-print, antiquarian and in-print titles in the fields of social history and women's history: http://www.naomisymes.com

The business builds on my own experiences of studying and teaching History. I took a degree in History at Queens' College, Cambridge University (1991), and then a Masters in Historical Research at Lancaster University (1993). For 7 years, I taught History (A Level, A/S and A2) to 16 - 18 year-olds in York and then Manchester. My particular interests are British women's history and social history post 1750.

Dutch 'womens history' has some interesting links to American womens history. Aletta Jacobs and Carrie Chapman Catt were friends and together they visited belligerent countries during WW1.

Was the right to vote the issue during the 1st 'feminist wave' (1890-1919), the right of women to decide on their own body (the pill, abortion) equal rights in education and career was the aim of the 2nd feminist wave (1967-1980) in the Netherlands. Interesting enough to ask question which I'm willing to answer
