Guide des sources - Archives du féminisme

Are you doing research on a topic about French women? The history of feminism in France?
If so, you should know that the Guide des sources de l'histoire du féminisme : de la Révolution française à nos jours (Christine Bard, et al., eds. Rennes: Presses universitaires de Rennes, 2006) has been updated and is now available as an online database.

You can access the Guide des Sources here:
Searching is by keyword or using the "advanced search" fields, including collection name, subject, dates.

The Archives du féminisme website contains many other resources, including digitized archives, as well as information about the Centre des archives du féminisme at the Université d'Angers. 

Of course,  Stanford University Libraries has many great primary sources right on campus, from the works of prominent French feminists and theorists, to early feminist press and titles by and about women in France. Keywords to start your searching are: France Feminism.

Some microfilms of note are listed here.  

We have the research archive of the scholar Patrick Bidelman, which contains photocopies and other reproductions of rare French feminist pamphlets and journals.

An important digital resource is the Gerritsen Collection:Women’s History Online, 1543-1945.

These are just to get you started!
