GWonline, the Bibliography, Filmography and Webography on Gender and War since 1600 collects and organizes secondary literature, women’s autobiographies, films and informative websites on this subject to make them available to the public. Alongside full text searching, it allows users to explore the collections of curated sources through multiple entry points: author or director, publication or release date, collection, major wars, countries and regions or keywords. The literature search is equipped with an OPEN URL feature that allows users world wide to check whether articles, books etc. are available in their local libraries.

GWonline is connected to the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Gender and War since 1600 (General Editor: Karen Hagemann). It also  allows a literature search by Handbook chapters. The project is supported by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
