in the Late 19th and Early 20th Century, Historical Research Was Becoming Professional in the United States, and the Historical Profession Was Gradually Dominated by Men. Women Were At a Disadvantage in the Historical Profession, Which Has Been Associated with Gender Discrimination. Women Historians Made Some Compromise, At the Same Time, They Also Fought for Equal Right. Although Being Marginalized, They Made a Unique Contribution to the Historical Knowledge, Which is Likely to Be Far More Than We Used to Know. the Study of American Women Historians Helps to Enrich Our Understanding of American Historiography, It is Still a Topic Worth Further Discussion.
