In Her Own Right: Women asserting their civil rights, 1820-1920

The In Her Own Right collection reflects women’s struggles for justice leading to the passage of the 19th Amendment. This collection was composed as part of the larger project aggregating content around this theme, sponsored by the Philadelphia Area Consortium for Special Collections Libraries (PACSCL). When the pilot is completed in July 2017, a portal will provide access to content from seven regional repositories, as well as interpretive essays based on the digital materials. To-date, the Drexel contribution consists of nearly 50 years of the reports and proceedings of the Alumnae Association of Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania, 1876-1923. The publication highlights the activity of the women physicians through this period as they work to build the presence of women in the profession, and contribute to the scientific and healthcare community.
