Alexander Street Press has announced the launch of an online collection of primary materials chronicling the activities and influence of women's international movements from 1830 to the present. The editors of "Women and Social Movements, International" are Professors Kathryn Kish Sklar and Thomas Dublin, both women's history scholars at SUNY Binghamton.

With 150,000 pages at completion and backed by a global editorial board of 130 historians, Women and Social Movements International will grow to include material from over 200 archives and libraries. Key organizations featured in the collection include the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, the International Abolitionist Federation, the Inter-American Commission on Women, the International Alliance of Women, the Pan Pacific and Southeast Asian Women's Association, the International Congress of Women at The Hague, the International Women's Tribune Centre, and many more.

Partner archives include Harvard's Schlesinger Library, the Aletta Institute of Women's History, the Sophia Smith Collection, the Library of Congress, and the Mildred Persinger Collection from Hollins University.

As with other Alexander Street online collections, Women and Social Movements International is Semantically Indexed and powerfully searchable. The collection's image viewer technology allows researchers to view and search high-quality images of the original primary materials.
