This month, the University Library Special Collections Department and Georgia State Women’s Studies Institute celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the Georgia Women’s Movement Oral History Project, a collaborative effort to record women’s first-hand accounts of their struggles for equal rights and efforts to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment in Georgia.
A public celebration to mark the anniversary will be held 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, March 29, 2005, on the eighth floor of Library South. The event program will feature three women closely involved with the project: Cathey Steinberg, the primary sponsor of the 1981-82 Equal Rights Amendment in Georgia; Janet Paulk, feminist and women’s rights activist; and frances anne Pici, a doctoral student at Georgia State. Refreshments will be served.
Oral histories collected through the project enhance the Women’s Collections, one of six special collections housed in the library. Nearly 50 oral histories have been collected to date.
