Ming Qing Women’s Writings

The Ming Qing Women’s Writings (明清婦女著作) site provides a carefully curated database of women’s writing from the Ming, Qing, and Republican periods of Chinese history. The database contains a wealth of information about authors and individual texts (and poems) within individual works. The online version also includes facsimiles of all the corresponding texts that can be navigated using this extensive set of data.

While all of this data can be conveniently searched online in Chinese or Pinyin, it is also possible to download the entire data set in MS Access format.

Encouragingly the site seems to have been actively maintained (“last update: December 2014″), and is currently part of a research project going on until at least 2016.
