Women's History Archives are the repository of a large number of varied sources on the history of women such as:

* Women's private papers, e.g. letters and diaries.

* Newspaper clippings about the history of women, gender research, the struggle for equal rights, interviews with women.

The mission of the archives is to collect, register and preserve records of the history of Icelandic women, past and present. The archives act as a centre for the dissemination of information the history of Icelandic women, helps find sources in this area, and encourages research on women's concerns.  Though most of our material is in Icelandic, we are glad to help interested persons find material in other languages and to help with translation as necessary.
