Women’s Studies Archive: Women’s Issues and Identities is a new full-text database of primary source material useful for researching 19th-and 20th-century women’s history, with a focus on sexuality and reproductive freedom; women and the labor movement; international peace activism; and second wave feminist movements. It also includes a collection of European periodicals, and a collection of the personal papers of a variety of women, including suffragists, missionaries, and communists. This database is a digitization and full-text indexing of collections that were previously available in microfilm. Researchers can search across the entire database or within specific collections.
