Short Description

The greatest single source for the study of women's history in the world, with materials spanning four centuries and fifteen languages.

This online resource delivers two million page images exactly as they appeared in the original printed works. Users can trace the evolution of feminism within a single country, as well as the impact of one country's movement on those of the others. In many cases, it also provides easy access to primary sources otherwise available only in a few rare book rooms.
