Explore the History of Feminism for International Women’s Day

No comments :
March 8 is International Women’s Day and for Canada 150 the nation is amplifying their message that equality matters!

The University of Alberta Libraries have a rich collection of resources to research gender discourse including our subject guide on Women’s and Gender Studies that help support the faculty and scholars of the university.

We suggest taking five or ten minutes today to explore Routledge Historical Resources: History of Feminism and then discussing what equality means to you with someone you know.

This is an in depth research tool for studying Feminism during the 19th Century (1776–1928). It contains an extensive range of primary and secondary resources, including full books, selected chapters, journal articles, thematic essays, and subject introductions on structural themes:

  • Politics and Law 
  • Religion and Belief 
  • Education
  • Literature and Writings 
  • Women at Home 
  • Society and Culture 
  • Empire
  • Movements and Ideologies

History of Feminism also offers an image gallery featuring photos, postcards, posters, and political cartoons.

"Feminist politics aims to end domination to free us to be who are — to live lives where we love justice, where we can live in peace. Feminism is for everybody." - Feminist activist, bell hooks.
