The West Virginia & Regional History Center is developing the WV Feminist Activist Collection to capture the voices and stories of native and transplanted West Virginians who have worked to affirm the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
The existing Collection includes a group of primary and secondary sources, with significant
additions from five activist women and one activist organization. We will build
on that foundation, expanding it to include more extensive documentation of the
struggles, experiences, contributions, and accomplishments of feminist activists,
supporting teaching, learning and research at WVU, in the broader state and regional
communities, and beyond.
Please see our WVFAC Events page for information on upcoming and past events pertaining to this collecting area.
