This website addresses students, researchers and others interested in women’s writing. It presents and invites research on women's writing (before 1900) made possible by the database WomenWriters. Aim of this database is to contain and present source material allowing to study the position women authors occupied in the literary field of their days.
The present website intends also to inform about this international collaboration and to provide preliminary results of research in this domain - as examples for students and for those willing to participate in the NEWW network, created within the project

(funded by N.W.O. Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research; 2007-2010), functioning as COST Action IS0901 "Women Writers In History" between 2009 and 2013.
