A collaborative digitization project, In Her Own Right includes collections on women’s advocacy in moral reform, abolition, education, work, relief for the poor, healthcare, and women’s own rights from the Philadelphia area between 1820-1920. Grounded in Philadelphia’s long history of political advocacy, the project addresses the themes of working across racial lines, working within the city of Philadelphia, and the roles of race and professionalism in women in medicine. In Her Own Right documents tens of thousands of pages of digitized material, including letters, diaries, and photographs, and it seeks to make these documents available to not only researchers, but to the general public.
