Archif Menywod Cymru/ Women Archive Wales (Blog)


Archif Menywod Cymru / Women's Archive of Wales exists to promote the study, and to rescue and preserve the sources, of women's history in Wales.

This blog has been set up to keep members and supporters of Archif Menywod Cymru / Women’s Archive of Wales up to date with developments, news and items of possible interest to them.

The task of recovering women’s history in Wales is urgent and pressing. Central to the reclamation of our distinctive history is the active process of tracking down, rescuing and conserving historical sources which throw light on women’s lives. We cannot reconstruct our past without authentic historical sources.

We collect a broad range of archival, photographic and other material sources which illustrate the history and heritage of women in Wales, and their experience in a range of spheres including the domestic, political, religious, economic, cultural and social. We particularly seek diaries, scrapbooks, the minute books of women’s organisations, literary manuscripts, photographs and similar materials. Our collections are deposited in our name in existing record offices in Wales, and in the National Library of Wales, where they are properly cared for, and where they can be accessed by researchers subject to any restrictions put on a collection.
