When you give credit for a term and use quotation marks around it the first time you use it, you are making it clear you are using a term you did not create. There are many different styles of giving credit within your text. Check with your professor for the form you should follow in your assignment.

Welter, Barbara. "The Cult of True Womanhood: 1820-1860." American Quarterly, vol. 18, no. 2, 1966, pp. 51-174. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/2711179.
