Women’s Archive at OSU official repository for Oklahoma Women’s March

Donations of signs, buttons, sticker and more being collected

February 6, 2017

Demonstrations like the 2017 Women’s March tell a story: a story about our time, our place and our people. The story of the Oklahoma Women’s Marches, held on Jan. 21, will reside in the Oklahoma Women’s Archives at Oklahoma State University.

“As part of one of the largest international efforts to advocate for women’s concerns in recent decades, the marches provide a unique opportunity for the Archives to capture this particular moment in Oklahoma women’s history,” Associate Dean of OSU Libraries Mary Larson said.

The Women’s Archives at the OSU Library is currently accepting donations of materials related to the January 2017 Women’s Marches in Oklahoma. Contributions of both physical items (such as signs, buttons, stickers and flyers) and digital materials (e.g., photos, videos, organizational files, emails or social media) are of interest. To donate material related to any of the Oklahoma marches contact David Peters at david.peters@okstate.edu or 405-744-6597.

Once processed, the collected contributions will be open to researchers interested in a wide variety of fields, such as history, gender and women’s studies, media studies, political science, art history and others.

“By preserving physical and digital materials related to the marches, we can offer future students and faculty a window onto what was going on at this place and time and how it related to what was happening internationally,” Larson said.

The Women’s Archives at Oklahoma State University serves as a central information source about women associated with Oklahoma. Its goal is to preserve the contributions women make to the state in all areas, including science, culture, business, and government, and it welcomes gifts that reflect women’s interests, activities, and intellectual pursuits from territorial days to the present. If you have questions about the Women’s Archives more generally, contact Mary Larson at mary.larson@okstate.edu or 405-744-6588.
