A larger issue in women's history

I've been considering this in the context of the stories of truly obscure women, and I've written one example up at my blog as "Historians' ethics, women's history, and the infinite archive." That particular case is drawn from the 1930s, which is different than the 1970s both culturally and in its remoteness from our own time, but I think this is a larger issue we should be writing about.

If you or anyone else compiles a bibliography about the ethics of digitizing sources about ordinary women-- especially women who may or may not still be living-- I'd be very interested to read it and/or do some form of virtual reading group with it.
