The WMF Library for Books & Documents established the Feminist Digital Library to stand as a gateway to knowledge on women and gender. To fulfil this purpose, and believing in the importance of free access to knowledge, the WMF Library for Books & Documents offers all the holdings of its Feminist Digital Library in open access(in addition to the print version), making the Feminist Library available to the public, to view and download, free of charge.
The Feminist Digital Library encompasses the WMF’s publications and acquisitions, including both traditional knowledge resources, as well as resources not commonly available through traditional publishing outlets, particularly grey literature and limited circulation publications.
The Feminist Digital Library offers WMF’s original and translated publications, its educational material for children and adults in the field of gender, as well as the works and private papers of women pioneers and public figures, acquired and published by the WMF, in addition to other knowledge resources on women and feminist studies.
The Feminist Digital Library also includes the rare periodicals and newspapers published in the Arab World, acquired and digitized by the WMF to be available for direct download.
