Women’s archives hold a significant place in the historical record, illuminating stories of individuals who had an impact on our past in both powerful and quiet ways. The history of the archives themselves and the struggle to achieve equal representation within the historical record also tell a valuable story, one that deftly examines American culture and society over the past few centuries. The efforts to document women's experiences, make women’s collections accessible, and renew collaboration between archivists and historians are at the heart of the 2018 One Book, One Profession selection, Perspectives on Women’s Archives, edited by Tanya Zanish-Belcher with Anke Voss.

Join Margery Sly, director of Special Collections at Temple University Libraries in Pennsylvania, who will lead a Brown Bag lunch discussion on this important collection of essays on Friday, August 17, from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm. RSVP by emailing Abigail Christian at achristian@archivists.org (subject line: “Perspectives on Women’s Archives Brown Bag Lunch”).
