Spanning the antebellum and Civil War eras, The Women's Periodicals of the Nineteenth Century, 1845-1865 represents a broad range of subjects and places of publications, reflective of the turbulent yet optimistic years of Westward expansion and war for women.

Drawing heavily from the temperance and abolition movements, this collection includes periodicals from a number of female authors and publishers who helped to cement the foundations of women's active role in American social and religious movements. Notable long-running publications include Dickens' Household Words and Valuable Whispers, Godey's Lady's Book, The Ladies Repository, and Peterson's Magazine.
