Access: History of Feminism
(University login required off campus)

This resource covers the subject of feminism over the long nineteenth century (1776–1928). It contains an extensive range of primary and secondary resources, including full books, selected chapters, and journal articles, as well as new thematic essays, and subject introductions on its structural themes:
  • Politics and Law
  • Religion and Belief
  • Education
  • Literature and Writings
  • Women at Home
  • Society and Culture
  • Empire
  • Movements and Ideologies
There is a video introduction to the subject from the Academic Editor Professor Ann Heilmann (coming soon), and an image gallery containing photographs and illustrations that can be used in teaching and study.

Do get in touch; we really want to know what you think about this resource.

This is a fabulous resource in many ways, not least because it doesn't just focus on Europe or the United States, but has more of a global reach. There are a lot of wonderful resources on empire, for example, and my own area of expertise, India. Most of these are secondary, although it's incredibly useful to have these collected in one resource, and there are some collections of primary materials. Colleagues in History are considering introducing a new first year global history module that focuses on gender, sexuality and the body and this would be an invaluable resource for such a module.

Please get this resource. We urgently need more teaching and research resources on the feminism and gender equality, particular in the recent political climate. It will be very useful too for students to use this resource for their own political/citizenship engagement.

This is a great resource. As other colleagues have already noted, staff within the Department of History are considering the introduction of a new team-taught module on gender and feminism. This resource would be incredibly useful for such a module. Gender and feminism are also central themes in my own research and current teaching so it would be great to be able to point students towards this resource.
