Routledge Historical Resources: History of Feminism has launched

A brand new research resource spanning across the long Nineteenth Century of feminism

Routledge Historical Resources: History of Feminism is an interdisciplinary digital reference resource that brings together a wealth of materials spanning across the long nineteenth century (1776 -1928). 

This carefully curated collection has been brought together with the expert help of our Academic editor Ann Heilmann (University of Cardiff) using content from the Taylor and Francis collection to provide a digital resource consisting of: 

  • 1000s of chapters of primary source materials, available electronically for the first time
  • More than 1000 chapters of secondary book content,
  • Over 100 journal articles from a range of Taylor and Francis journals
  • 16 newly commissioned thematic essays by experts in the field
  • An introductory video to the subject and resource from the academic editor, Professor Ann Heilmann
  • An image gallery to aid research and study
  • Short introductions (up to 500 words) to the 9 key subject categories

 With comprehensive cross-linking between content; fully searchable text to aid discoverability; and the ability to browse articles by subject, place, period, and notable figures History of Feminism will allow users to understand the social and historical context of events and decisions better than traditional, offline resources.

History of Feminism is a truly interdisciplinary database, containing material that will be useful to both students and researchers studying feminism in history, sociology, gender studies or literature.
