CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Women's Archive of Wales/Archif Menywod Cymru was established in 1998. Its aims are to provide a resource for present and future generations to investigate and research the lives, traditions and histories of women in Wales; to seek to raise the profile of the role of women in Wales, both past and present, by all relevant means such as research, education, exhibitions, events etc.; to liaise with existing libraries and archives in Wales over the collection, listing and exploitation of relevant material; to carry out a comprehensive investigation of existing holdings of relevant material in order to facilitate awareness and encourage future use of such material; to liaise with relevant women's archives across the world and with other relevant organisations to exchange ideas and information, and where relevant, source materials, and to promote WAW/AMC as a national asset for Wales. Since its inception, WAW/AMC has been active in seeking to identify and preserve historical material relating to the role and activities of women in Wales, especially that appears to fall outside the remit of other repositories. This is of great importance both for bringing consciousness of women into Welsh education, and more generally for reminding people in Wales that there have been a variety of important women in their history. The Archives activity complements the work of the Glasgow Womens Library as well as the Womens Library and the Feminist Library in London, and is therefore significant to record-keeping on women in Britain generally.
