Tuesday, March 14, 2023

We offer many resources related to women’s studies and women’s history. 

In honor of Women’s History month, we feature some here.

These resources can help:

  • You explore women’s issues for a research paper
  • Instructors looking for sources about women to include in their courses
  • If you want to learn more about women’s history through firsthand accounts

Digitized primary sources

Discover women’s voices in fiction, poetry, and other works by Black Women Writers and Latin American Women Writers.

Read about women’s experiences throughout history in their own words in resources like British and Irish Women's Letters and Diaries and North American Women's Letters and Diaries: Colonial to 1950

For more documents, images, books, films, and more, take a look at Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1600-2000. This database is “a fabulous resource for students because it is easily searchable, clearly accessible, and intimately relatable. It has a wide variety of perspectives within social movements and contains so many different kinds of documents,” said Dr. Michelle Berry, Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Gender & Women’s Studies Department.
