Defining Gender database redesigned!

Defining Gender provides access to a vast body of original British source material that has enriched the teaching and research experience of those studying history, literature, sociology and education from a gendered perspective.  The databases contains a wide range of original sources including ephemera, pamphlets, commonplace books, diaries, periodicals, letters, ledgers, manuscript journals, poetry, receipt books and conduct and advice literature.
