The Diane L. Fowlkes Spring Event is held annually to highlight collections in the Georgia State University Library Women’s Collection. It is named for the founding director of the Women’s Studies Institute at the university.

The Georgia Women’s Movement Project, brainchild of Lucy Hargrett Draper, was founded in 1995. GSU’s President, Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, Chair of the Women’s Studies Institute, and Head of the Library’s Special Collections Department labored with women’s rights activists to realize Lucy’s vision of an archives that would document the unsung heroines of the fight for equal rights in Georgia.

Today, the Georgia Women’s Movement Archives contains an outstanding collection of second- wave feminist materials, and the Women’s Collection has expanded to document the lives and work of women on the GSU campus as well as individuals and organizations participating in women-centered activism.
