Database of the Week: Struggle for Women's Rights

Yesterday was International Women's Day, and this month is Women's History Month. In honor of these celebrations, each week in March, the library will be highlighting women's history online resources. 

The Struggle for Women's Rights consists of records of suffrage organizations and other women's rights organizations as well as personal papers of women's rights advocates, many of whom were involved in the suffrage movement. In particular, this module consists of the records of the National Woman's Party, League of Women Voters, and the Women's Action Alliance. If you are seeking primary source materials, this database would be a good resource to use.

To find the Struggle for Women's Rights, or any of the other 435+ databases available from the library's online collection, go to All of our research databases are available in this alphabetical list.
