“Digitizing the Sound and Sight of American Women’s Work for Peace and Justice”

Digitizing, cataloging, and transcribing 650 audio and visual recordings of women activists involved in peace and social justice movements dating from the 1930s to the late-twentieth century.

The audio, film, and video recordings to be digitized under the “Digitizing the Sound and Sight of American Women’s Work for Peace and Justice” will bring to the public the voices and images of women in the twentieth century who worked for social justice and a peaceful world. While women have always been a significant force in the grass roots, citizen-led, volunteer movements opposed to war, primary resources in the form of twentieth century audio and visual recordings, documenting that participation, have not been as easily or readily available for research. This grant project would allow the Swarthmore College Peace Collection (SCPC) to digitize these recordings, provide the necessary metadata for on line access, and allow access to the recordings themselves to scholars and the general public around the world.
