Accessible Archives’ Women’s Suffrage Collection provides access to digitized newspapers originally published between 1849 and 1913 that were concerned with women’s rights and suffragist endeavors. The collection’s five parts encompass iconic publications such as The Lily, the first newspaper for women; The Revolution, the official publication of the National Woman Suffrage Association; as well as an anti-suffrage newspaper known as The Remonstrance. Taken together, the five subsections of the collection represent unique and engaging primary source materials that have tremendous value to researchers and scholars dedicated to American history, political science, gender studies, and the history of mass communication. The interdisciplinary appeal of these digitized newspapers is intensified by the inclusion of contextual narratives and blog posts that spotlight captivating figures and historical milestones of early women’s rights. Although the platform’s download and print options are not as robust as interfaces associated with competitors like ProQuest or Readex, the core search and browse features are effective and designed to meet the needs of academic and public library users.
