"Women’s history" isn’t really a special branch in the broad category of "history." Rather, every branch of history, from political and social history to local and international history, is also the history of women.
But the roles and perspectives of women are frequently overlooked in the past struggles and triumphs that shape our modern lives. This can make it difficult for students and scholars to discover resources that illuminate these connections in deeply meaningful and insightful ways.
Women's history and gender studies databases from ProQuest are thoughtfully curated by experts to overcome this challenge. The experiences, influences and observations of women over time and around the world are brought to the forefront of research and learning through materials such as organizational documents, domestic records, personal correspondence, books, videos, historical periodicals, newspapers, dissertations and more.
