Historical Digital Archives

Women's Periodicals of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century, 1733-1844

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 Nineteenth Century, 1866-1891

As one part of a three-part collection containing women’s-related periodicals, the titles in this collection span the later part of the 19th century and represent a broad range of subjects and places of publication -  from Southern religious and cultural periodicals to Northern domestic and parenting magazines.
