Women's Archives celebrates 15 years

The Victoria Women's Movement Archives, in the McPherson Library, will host a party marking its 15th anniversary on Oct. 14, from 3–5 p.m. A collaborative effort of women's groups in Victoria, the UVic Archives and the Department of Women's Studies, the archives preserve and provide access to important material on the history of women's movement groups in Victoria. "The whole era of vibrant community-based feminist activism that seems to have disappeared from view and from public awareness comes quickly to life when you start looking through these records," says Debby Yaffe, who helped found the archives.
