Women’s Studies Archive Provides “Unique” and “Rich” Content

2 min read

Gale’s new archive, Women’s Studies Archive: Women’s Issues and Identities, contains approximately one million never-before-digitized pages of primary source material, all aligned with women’s studies. As the first in the Women’s Studies archive, this collection traces the path of women’s issues from past to present—pulling primary sources from manuscripts, newspapers, periodicals, and more. It captures the foundation of women’s movements, struggles and triumphs, and provides researchers with valuable insights.

Since its release, Women’s Studies Archive has been trialed and reviewed. Take a look at what the users thought:


This online archive provides content that is unique, rich, and highly relevant to historical research as well as to current conversations about politics, social issues, and women’s health…The platform makes discovering relevant primary sources easy for novice researchers while also giving more control to experienced scholars…

The Gale’s Women’s Studies Archive is doubtlessly valuable to researchers who are investigating the history of the women’s liberation movement. As new generations of leaders in the women’s studies movement emerge, they can use the Gale’s Women’s Studies archive to look back on the movement for research, inspiration, and useful lessons. Recommended for academic libraries.
