dc.description.abstract This thesis is an examination of the conservation movement, particularly in regards to hydroelectric power, from the Progressive Era through the New Deal. The creation of the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1933 had been premised upon earlier efforts to capture the river’s power and harness it to meet social needs. By placing women at the center of the story, both in terms of their activism in bringing a conservation plan in the Tennessee River valley into fruition, and in terms of the gendered implications of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s power policy, this thesis seeks to examine the invisible role that the construction of power politics had on the South. en_US
