Every Day Life and Women in America contains primary source material from the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History, Duke University and The New York Public Library. The collection includes thousands of fully searchable images (with transcriptions) of monographs, pamphlets, periodicals and broadsides from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Together, these address a variety of subjects including  politics, gender, religion, race, education, employment, marriage, sexuality, home and family life, health and pastimes. The collection is especially rich in conduct of life and domestic-management literature, offering vivid insights into the daily lives of women and men, as well as emphasizing contrasts in regional, urban and rural cultures.
