A Weekend Link - GWMP Oral History

One part of the Georgia State University Special Collection is their 'Georgia Women's Movement Oral History Project'. This project was brought together by the Women's Studies Institute of GSU and the Special Collections department. It seeks to record and present the personal histories of women involved in the Equal Women's Rights Act in Georgia.

The project's volunteers have conducted oral interviews from these women and has presented them online. You can listen to the interviews or read transcripts. Also included are details on materials and papers held in Special Collections that related to the women who have been interviewed.

This is a great example of how oral histories are important and have a true value for our society.
