Supporting women's history through research, writing, publication, preservation, interpretation, teaching and public education.
The project embraces women's activism and feminism in all of its diversity and contradictions including
advocates of equal rights, equal opportunity, women's liberation, social, radical, lesbian and liberal feminism,
and it will take a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-racial approach to movement issues. It will also consider
the work of women artists, theologians, and other cultural leaders who created a revolution in many areas of
American life.

"Documenting Women’s Activism and Leadership
in Chicago, 1945-2000"

We Need Your Help!

CAWHC’s current project, Documenting Women's Activism and Leadership in Chicago, 1945-2000,
is identifing 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.
