  • Description The Women's Studies Archive documents the social, political, and professional aspects of women’s lives, offering resources pertaining to the roles, experiences, and achievements of women in society. The Women's Issues and Identities sub-collection focuses on the social, political, and professional achievements of women throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century, drawing on primary sources from manuscripts, newspapers, periodicals, and more. The Voice and Vision sub-collection contains a vast range of primary sources from 1780 to 2000, spanning multiple geographic regions, providing an abundance of perspectives on women’s experiences and impact on society around the world. Of particular importance are the materials that focus solely on female authors or magazines and journals produced by women, not simply for women. The contents of this collection are available for text analysis and data mining through Gale's Digital Scholar Lab.
