For example, an autobiography by Bates and autobiographies from the Little Rock Nine, a recorded interview manuscript, a personal letter from Bates to Roy Wilkins, monographs on women leaders in the Movement, as well as, on the Civil Rights Movement itself examining Bates’s leadership skills during the integration of Little Rock, monographs analyzing the actions on several women in the Civil Rights Movement, monographs reviewing Brown vs. Board of Education, monographs on the desegregation and crisis of Little Rock Central High School, newspaper article examining the integration crisis of Little Rock and biographies on Bates, provide necessary information on her roles as a leader in the community and in the Civil Rights Movement.

In monographs, I expect to find critical analysis of her work in the community as the president of the local NAACP chapter and her leadership skills in the integration of Little Rock Central High School. I also expect to find how she differed from other women leaders in the movement.

With Wollstonecraft’s work “Vindications of the Rights of Woman,” explained as “the founding feminist text in English.” In his 16 page excerpt of Wollstonecraft, he goes over the scrutinies, the appraisals and the great work that was written over the years.
