New HeinOnline Collection--Women and the Law

Although it is no longer Women's History month, continue your celebration by browsing HeinOnline’s new collection,  Women and the Law (Peggy) [UW Restricted]. The collection is dedicated to Ilene N. Hein, who passed away in 2012 and was co-founder of William S. Hein & Co., Inc., and to Margaret (“Peggy”) Marmion, the late mother of Kevin Marmion, William S. Hein & Co.’s current president.

The collection, which includes books, biographies, and periodicals discussing women’s roles in law and society, contains over 800 fully-searchable titles. Since the oldest publication in the collection was published in 1609 and the most recent was published in 2014, the materials in this collection demonstrate the evolution of gender roles in society as a whole and in the legal system.

The Women and the Law collection is divided into subject-specific sections like:
  • Works on Abortion
  • Biographies of Famous Women
  • Legal Rights and Suffrage
  • Women & Education
  • Women & Employment
Additionally, the collection features publications related to Emory University’s Feminism and Legal Theory (FLT) project, which documents scholarship on issues like reproductive rights, children, family relationships, gender, sexuality, religion, disabilities, and sexual abuse and violence.

Women and the Law is located in HeinOnline’s alphabetical list of collections and is fully searchable. More information is available here
