Gerritsen Women's History Collection of Aletta H. Jacobs

Also known as: Gerritsen Collection: Women's History Online
Platform: ProQuest

Books, pamphlets and periodicals reflecting the revolution of a feminist consciousness and the movement for women's rights. The Gerritsen Collection is a source for the study of women's history in the world, with materials spanning four centuries and 15 languages. The Gerritsen curators gathered more than 4,700 publications from continental Europe, the U.S., the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand, dating from 1543-1945. The anti-feminist case is presented as well as the pro-feminist; many other titles present a purely objective record of the condition of women at a given time.
