CWHC’s current project, "Documenting Women's Activism and Leadership in Chicago, 1945-2000",
is identifying and preserving resources to document women’s contributions during this period, with
a particular emphasis on the Chicago women’s movement of the 1960s - 1980s. This grassroots
effort brings together scholars, archivists, activists and community leaders to uncover hidden material that will be used to update the research we undertook in producing Women Building Chicago, A Biographical Dictionary, 1970-1990.
We'd love to hear from you! Let us know if you have questions or information to share. For membership information follow the link above.
