Some of the topics covered include the WPA, President Roosevelt, the challenges of domestic life, experiencing dust storms as a child, rabbit drives, gypsies, and Saturday evenings in town.

Women’s Encampment for a Future of Peace and Justice (WEFPJ) (Web)

HeRSToRieS, SoNGS, PHoToGRaPHS, NeWSPaPeR aRTiCLeS etc. since 1983 available in the Online archive.

Description: WEFPJ was an all-women’s community of protest and challenge to violence and militarism housed on 52 acres bordering the Seneca Army Depot in upstate New York.

Commonly known as the Seneca Women’s Peace Camp or Seneca, the encampment was modeled after the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in England (1981-2000) where hundreds of British sisters were creating nonviolent protest in the face of the scheduled deployment of U.S. Cruise missiles.

L’association Archives du Féminisme, University of Angers (Web)

The website offers a collection of online exhibits and digital documents, as well as a searchable guide to sources.

Description: L’association Archives du Féminisme préserve les archives des associations et des militantes féministes. Elle développe aussi la documentation et la recherche dans ce domaine.
