Here’s one of our favorite databases:

Women's Studies Archives

What’s in it?

This archive provides access to primary sources from the 19th and 20th centuries covering the social, political, and professional aspects of women's lives. It also offers a look at the roles, experiences, achievements, and many contributions women have made in society and the issues that have affected women.

Why should you use it?

This is a great database if you want multiple experiences and insights from the pioneers of women’s history. It spans multiple geographic regions, including Europe, North and South America, Africa, India, East Asia, and the Pacific Rim with content in English, French, German, and Dutch.  

Who should use it?

Students, faculty, or staff members who are interested in Women’s and Gender Studies, gender and sexuality, gender identity and inequality, and women throughout history.  

Why use a database?

When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
