WOMEN IN THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES
A Finding Aid to Women's Studies Resources in The National Archives, Kew, combined with Original Documents on the Suffrage Question in Britain, the Empire and Colonial Territories
Further information on this digital resource can be found on our website www.amdigital.co.uk.
This resource is comprised of two distinct elements:
- A Finding Aid to Women's Studies Resources in the National Archives at Kew
- Original Documents on the Suffrage Question in Britain, the Empire and Colonial Territories
The finding aid is the result of a five year project by staff at Kew and enables researchers to quickly locate details of any document relating to women in the National Archives at Kew. It is far more detailed and extensive than anything available elsewhere on the web and has the benefit of ranging across all of the classes held at the National Archives.
The Original Documents will be valuable for those teaching courses on:
- The Campaign for Women's Suffrage in Britain, 1903-1928
- The granting of women's suffrage in Colonial territories, 1930-1962
Both areas are explored by our Consultant Editor, Professor Martin Pugh, in his contextual essay, which introduces and provides direct links to many of the documents.
