Female Biography Project
Internet Database

Gina Luria Walker, Associate Professor of Women’s Studies at New School University, seeks scholars to participate in the Female Biography Project, a collaborative feminist effort in which the Chawton House Library Edition of Mary Hays’s pioneering six volumes of Female Biography (1803) are being enriched with the most recent scholarship about the 300 women she included.
