July 12, 2018

Three Centuries of Digital Primary Sources Documenting Developments in Gender Roles and Relations


Gender: Identity and Social Change, a new digital primary source collection, is now available from Adam Matthew Digital.

Students and scholars can now explore three centuries of primary source material documenting extensive developments in gender roles and relations. The expansive collection offers sources for the study of women's suffrage, the feminist movement, the men’s movement, employment, education, the body, the family, and government and politics.

Krista Cowman, University of Lincoln, commented:

“Gender: Identity and Social Change offers researchers the exciting opportunity to access a critical range of primary sources on gender history across three continents.”

Explore documents relating to Doris Stevens and Martha Carey Thomas in their fight for suffrage; read a unique collection of newsletters representing the men’s movement; and discover material highlighting arguments surrounding the body, including sexuality and abortion.

Paul Deslandes, The University of Vermont, remarked:

“The sheer breadth of sources is astounding. Topics are nearly endless and students and professional researchers alike will find it to be an invaluable resource.”
