This database provides access to digital collections of primary sources (photos, letters, diaries, artifacts, etc.) that document the history of women in the United States.  Browse by: Subjects, States, Time Periods, or Primary Source Types, or use the Search box to type in a topic.  One of the more interesting collections is Katrina Thomas Ethnic Wedding Photograph Collection (Bryn Mawr College) that includes more than 800 photographs of ethnic weddings in the US (1960s-90s).  More than 70 ethnic and religious groups are represented. The "Photographer's notes" section of each record provides contextual information about individual photographs.
