Resources to explore every aspect of women’s history, over time and around the world

Every branch of history is also the history of women, but the roles and perspectives of women are frequently overlooked. Only ProQuest’s women’s history databases span the experiences, influences and observations of women over time and around the world for comprehensive interdisciplinary research and learning. Collections include organizational documents, domestic records, personal correspondence, books, videos, historical periodicals, newspapers, dissertations as well as literature and fashion publications.
