FRAmes on GENder (FRAGEN)

I must admit- I know a fair amount about American second-wave feminism, but very little about European feminism in the 1970s and 1980s. Thus, I was happy to learn about FRAmes on GENder (FRAGEN), a free online database which digitizes core second-wave feminist texts from 29 European countries.

Maintained by Aletta, the Amsterdam based Institute for Women’s History, FRAGEN ensures that each text’s original language is retained. Users can browse the database’s catalog by country, keyword, or author.

In terms of project goals, the website reads:

The objective of the project is to make information available which will allow for comparative research into the history of feminist ideas in different European countries.
