New catalogue registrations online 2021

At the Women’s History Archives, we aim to make accessibly online most of our archival material that is available for research as well as making our catalogue as detailed as possible. In the year 2021 we made the following registrations available (in order of publication, the newest first):

The collections of the Women’s History Archives are ever growing. Currently we house over 270 collections, ranging from very small ones to more extensive ones. Our focus is on women’s history in Iceland and of Icelandic women with emphasis on their non-governmental organizations (NGOs). A list of women’s organizations in Iceland throughout the 19th and 20th century, with a touch of the 21st, is available in Icelandic on our website. We welcome donations from people of all genders and ethnicities as long as it has a connection to Iceland. Please contact us if you would like to know more on how to donate documents.
