ViVa: A Bibliography of Women's History in Historical and Women's Studies Journals

ViVa includes citations to scholarly articles about women's and gender history, 1975 to the present. Articles published in English, French, German, Dutch, Scandinavian languages, and occasionally Spanish, are indexed from more than 175 journals from around the world. ViVa also includes citations on women in African history from AfricaBib, a large Africana database on women. ViVa is short for "Vrouwengeschiedenis in het Vaktijdschrift", which is Dutch for "Women's history in professional periodicals." Related topics such as prostitution, witchcraft, housework, sexuality, birth control, infanticide, gynecology, and masculinity are also included. (Updates vary)
