I am writing a history of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) with a focus on women and gender. Beginning with the 1960 sit-in movement that formed the basis for the organization through the shift from a "coordinating committee" to an organization of organizers and extending into 1965-66, I am exploring women's experiences and participation, how they shaped the organization, and how they as individuals, and SNCC as an organization accepted, challenged, ignored, defied, and operated within and beyond the accepted gender conventions of the day--in the larger society and in African American communities. I am using a case studies approach and emphasizing those aspects of the organization's history, including community-based work, that are particularly useful for illuminating important patterns and themes, examining key moments, and engaging in comparison. This work is particularly important in a world where power and oppression remain closely linked with gender.
