TWU Libraries - Gateway to Women's History

Gateway to Women's History

Welcome!

The Gateway to Women's History is an online site providing electronic access to primary source materials from the Woman's Collection at Texas Woman's University. Visitors can access photographs, documents, pamphlets, menus, programs, catalogs, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, photographs, negatives, artifacts, clothing, textiles, and descriptive records of all our manuscript collections. Rare books, ephemera, and memorabilia are also available for your viewing.

A preeminent research center on women's history, the Woman's Collection was established in 1932. The collection represents the best concentration of resources on women in Texas, the Southwest, and throughout the United States. The records range from nationally known collections to stories of women who led quiet domestic lives. Other items featured in the Woman's Collection include books, periodicals, oral histories, microforms, maps, and posters.

For more information, or to request permission to use any of the materials available in the Gateway to Women's History, contact us at womenshistory@twu.edu , or 940-898-3751.

New Collections Added!

As part of the University Archives efforts to capture TWU’s history, we are proud to announce three new digital initiatives celebrating historic anniversaries across campus. Digital archives have been created celebrating the College of Nursing’s 60th anniversary, the 100th anniversary of the Lasso Student Newspaper, and the 75th anniversary of the Little Chapel-in-the-Woods.
