Digitized Core Second Wave Material from Europe

Core Second Wave feminist texts from 29 European countries are available in fulltext through the  project "Fragen". The books, articles, and pamphlets are scanned, so they are all in their original languages. The Fragen database is searchable by phrase (words anywhere), or browsable by  country, authors, keyword (subject heading), or "overview" (translated title list). The database records have a brief summary in English. (The material from the United Kingdom and Ireland are in English.)
