Biographical Dictionary of Swedish Women
It is the product of more than two years of work by almost 400 experts, led by a group of researchers from Göteborg University. Created as a counterweight to the traditional encyclopedias that mainly focus on the achievements of men, the database contains 1000 biographies of women who have actively contributed to Swedish society – from the Middle Ages to present day. The intention is to add another thousand women to the database in the years to come.
