Women's Studies


MARC Records Available  Read More...

This collection is the first of three containing women's-related periodicals that span the 18th through the 19th century and represent a broad range of subjects and places of publication. This collection, containing over 210 periodicals, spans the Colonial through the Jacksonian Eras, from the 1730s to 1840s. Because almost all of the women's periodicals by nature covered many topics, the titles included in this collection highlight radically changing perceptions of womanhood and ideas about the role of women over this period of time.

Women's Periodicals of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century, 1733-1844 includes representative titles such as The Lady's Monthly Museum or Polite Repository of Amusement and Instruction, The Ladies' Companion, The Lady's Book, and Margret Fuller's Transcendentalist publication, The Dial.
