Another recent purchase of the Law Library was ProQuest History Vault: Women’s Studies Manuscript Collections
This valuable collection of materials from the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College tells the story of the fight for voting rights for women at the national, regional, and local levels. The papers of key national leaders like Julia Ward Howe, Anna Howard Shaw, and Matilda Gage are included. Equally important are the papers of lesser known state and local leaders like Catharine Waugh McCulloch of Illinois, Olympia Brown of Wisconsin, and Nellie Nugent Somerville of Mississippi. In addition to the Voting Rights papers, this module also includes records on women involved in national politics, like Mary Dewson and Jeannette B. Rankin.

As part of the continuing partnership between the Media Resources Center and the Pacifica Radio Archives, MRC is developing a new online audio collection devoted to women’s history. These recordings include interviews, panel discussions, literary and musical performances, news coverage, and other programing broadcast on various Pacifica affiliates (including Berkeley’s KPFA) between the mid-1950s and the 1980s.
The first 26 sound recording files are now available for listening at: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/womenpacifica.html Other files will be added to this collection over time.
Listening to these files requires the free Real audio player (www.real.com)
