Women and the Law (Peggy) is a collection uniting books, biographies and periodicals dedicated to the role of women in society and the law. Notable works included in this library are History of Women Sufferarge (1881-1922), the complete Feminism and Legal Theory Project, and the Documentary History of the Legal Aspects of Abortion series. Also featured are other works on abortion, biographies of famous women, works pertaining to legal rights and suffrage, and books and journals that pertain to the role of women in education and employment.Peggy 1.PNG

This unique collection of materials provides a convenient platform for users to research the progression of women’s roles and rights in society over the past 200 years.


A nice feature of Peggy is the ability to search the web page though a search bar by “Full Text”, “Citation”, “Catalog”, or by “Case Law.” This feature allows for a faster and in-depth search of a particular topic or article.Over the last sixteen years HeinOnline has grown from a single law journal collection of 25 titles to a digital archive with more than 60 distinct collections containing over 131 million pages, more than 100,000 titles, and 237,000 volumes.

Peggy also lists “All Titles” for a more thorough search of the web page. Under “All Titles” the article name and author is listed in alphabetical order.

Access to Heinonline: Women and the Law database is available through the Texas Tech Law Library website under the Electronic Databases tab.
