What the !#%$ is Women and the Law (Peggy)?
To celebrate the first day of Women’s History Month, this week’s What the !#%$ Wednesday highlights Women and the Law (Peggy), a collection on HeinOnline that brings together more than 3,600 fully searchable books, biographies, and periodicals dedicated to the role of women in society and the law.
This collection provides a platform for users to research the progression of women’s roles and rights in society over the past 200 years.
Also included are titles from Emory University Law School’s Feminism and Legal Theory Project that provide a platform to view the effect of law and culture on the female gender.
Featured subcollections include (but are not limited to):
- Feminism and Legal Theory Project
- Biographies of Famous Women
- Legal Rights & Suffrage
- Women & Education
- Women & Employment
- Women & Society
- Works on Abortion
So why not take a few minutes to celebrate and browse through this amazing collection! HeinOnline has created a LibGuide with more information on the collection.
And if you are wondering why the collection is also called Peggy, take a look at the collection’s homepage for the story!
