Launched in 2005, the Women's Lives from Primary Source Microfilm places in the hands of students, faculty, and independent researchers the diaries, correspondence, reports, and publications by and about women. In their struggle to express through word and image their feelings, thoughts, opinions, and activities, women alone and as parts of social, ethnic, religious, economic, and political groups were ever key participants in the unfolding of historical events great and small. This series vivifies the greatness and smallness of those roles, bringing to our attention through their writings their contributions to and participation in daily affairs and great events of their lives.
Women's Lives encompasses a vast range of material, from the radical activism of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn and British suffragist Mary Gawthorpe to the missionary work of the women across the United States during late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Africa and Asia. As the beginning of a great adventure, this series provides researchers a set of windows through which they may peer into the lives of women in the United States, Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia, and thereby gain a greater understanding of how they lived and in living, changed the fabric of history itself.
