Metadata[+] Show full item record
The second place price for the 2011 Undergraduate Research Paper Contest was awarded for this paper which examines Thomas Jefferson's beliefs about the importance of a woman's domestic role in American society by establishing a set of social rules, directly and indirectly stated, meant to keep women's minds off politics. The research examines the nature of the correspondences, and the overall context of Jefferson's discussions in hopes to find out what he thought about women speaking and engaging in the world outside of the home.
