Activist Women Oral History Project: About the Activist Women Oral History Project

About the Activist Women Oral History Project



The Activist Women Oral History Project was established in 2006, and forms part of the Archives for Research on Women. This project is broad in scope, and the subject matter includes domestic violence, women's health and reproductive justice, politics, policy making and the law, child sex trafficking, philanthropy, community activism, art and culture, equality in the workplace, civil rights, and LGBTQ activism.

Early interviews were recorded on audio cassettes, and more recent interviews have been recorded using either a digital audio recorder or a video recorder, or a video recorder in conjunction with an audio recorder. In all instances, audio use copies are available on CD-roms, and some video interviews are available on DVDs.

This guide is a work in progress, as many of the interviews have not yet been fully processed. The guide will be updated on a regular basis. If you would like to access any of the interviews, please contact the Women's /  Gender and Sexuality Collections Archivist.
