The database contains core feminist texts from 29 countries (all EU countries plus Croatia and Turkey) which have been influential in the development of feminist ideas in the second half of the 20th century.

The selected texts are full text available in the original language of publication. The texts can be books, articles, periodicals, pamphlets, posters or pictures. The survey offers an analytical description of the contents of the text. The database is open to the research community. It is possible to search the contents of the database by country, author and keyword.

For almost all texts in the database a so-called CC license, non commercial, no derivatives (cc by-nc-nd) was obtained, which allows others to download the works and share them with others for research purposes only, as long as they link back to the FRAGEN database. It is not permitted to change the texts in any way or use them commercially.
