FRAmes on GENder

Welcome to FRAmes on GENder (formerly FRAGEN)
For the first time, core feminist texts from the second wave of feminism in Europe have been made available to researchers in an easily accessible online database. The FRAGEN project brings together books, articles and pamphlets that were influential in the development of feminist ideas in 29 countries during the second half of the 20th century.
From 2008 until 2011 European women’s libraries, gender studies departments and scholars from all over Europe have been working together in the FRAGEN project.

Why FRAGEN?
The aim of the project is to facilitate comparative research into the history of feminist thinking in 29 countries. FRAGEN was launched to the international research community in 2011 and is part of the European research project QUING.

29 Countries, 29 partners select core feminist texts in Europe.
The selected texts have been digitised and made available. Making this information available will allow for comparative research into the history of feminist ideas in different European countries.

The content in FRAGEN serves two goals:
>> to create a database of the original texts on gender+equality frames that have emerged from feminist movements in Europe
>> to organize and facilitate open access for researchers to this database
