Women and the Law Collection Now in HeinOnline

Just in time for Women's History Month in March, HeinOnline released a new collection, Women and the Law. It includes half a million pages of historical books, articles, and government publications on topics related to gender and law, including feminist legal theory, the suffragette movement, abortion and sex discrimination in employment. The Women & Society section of the new library is particularly interesting, featuring a number of 19th and 20th century treatises on marriage and divorce laws. The collection will continue to grow, and there are plans to include an additional sub-library of Title IX materials.

Browse the new Women and the Law collection by accessing HeinOnline and choosing it from the alphabetical list of libraries. To locate additional titles in the Goodson Law Library collection, search the Duke University Libraries catalog for subjects like "Women – Suffrage – United States", "Feminist Jurisprudence," and "Gender & the Law," or Ask a Librarian.
