From the Collection
The ephemera collection of the Barnard Center for Research on Women contains
hundreds of rare, difficult-to-find feminist materials dating back to the early Second
Wave of American women's movements. This public archive of fliers, reports,
newsletters, pamphlets, and conference
programs provides an exciting glimpse into one of the most vibrant moments in the
history of activism.
On the Web
Beginning in the spring of 2006, the Center will present Internet exhibits to make
these valuable materials more widely available. Each semester, our student research
assistants will curate an exhibition of the most interesting documents, organizing them
around a theme of enduring importance: from women's prison activism to reproductive
health to immigration rights to political revolution.
