1158 digitised journals in pdf file format
This collection incorporates a number of journals stored at LSE Library and gradually more titles will be included as the Library progresses their digitisation. LSE Library acknowledges the kind support of the Friends of the Women's Library in making the digitisation of The Catholic Citizen and The Women's Leader journals possible.
Immediate source of acquisition or transfer
This collection consists of journals which cover many campaigns for equality of rights and opportunities published after the First World War. Campaigns range from the right to vote on the same terms as men, to birth control, family allowances, guardianship rights, equal pay, and abolition of the marriage bar, to an equal role for women in the League of Nations. Journals, such as “Urania”, challenged gender and sexual norms.
