For HIST/WMST/EURO 259: Towards Emancipation ? Women in Modern European History

Towards Emancipation? – Women in Modern European History: A Digital Exhibition & Encyclopedia
is a digital resource on European women’s history ranging from the period of the Enlightenment  and the French Revolution to the Age of World Wars and the post-1945 history. The project was created by students of the HIST/WMST 259 course at UNC Chapel Hill in the spring 2018. They hope that the website will serve as an e-resource to explore people, organizations, movements, publications  and laws of modern European women’s history. In addition, to informative entries on these subjects written by students, the website includes an art gallery with  the work of several female artists, many visual documents, a chronology of the historical development and a list with recommendations of related films and publications. They wanted to present the history of the struggle towards women’s  emancipation to the public, to inform and empower users today for the continuing fight for social justice and gender equality.
