UC Libraries now have access to two modules - Issues & Identities and Voice & Vision -- in the Women's Studies Archive. Hosted at Gale Primary Sources, this archive showcases women's voices and feminism's evolution during the 19th and 20th centuries. Content is global and includes manuscripts, newspapers, periodicals, memoirs, pamphlets, personal papers and more from libraries & archives including the British Library, Swarthmore College, New York University, The National Archives at Kew, University of California Santa Barbara, and the American Antiquarian Society.

Sample collections include the Grassroots Feminist Organizations featuring files (1960s-1990s) from women's centers and feminist organizations in Boston and San Francisco. The Women's Trade Union League (WTUL) and Its Leaders highlights women's activism in the first of the 20th centuries and includes the papers of Margaret Dreier Robins who led the WTUL from 1907 to 1922. The National Network of Hispanic Women Archives, from UCSB, offer administrative files, publications, photographs and ephemera from the Network - a non-profit focused on advancing Hispanic women's leadership in private public sectors from the 1970s through the 1990s.

The archive is available in the Library's database listing. In addition to searching the archive, you can browse all 30 collections or navigate to specific publications.
