The Georgia Women's Movement Oral History Collection began in 1995 as part of the Georgia Women's Movement Project, a joint undertaking of the Women's Studies Institute of Georgia State University and the Special Collections Department of The University Library. The collection is composed of recorded interviews (audio cassettes, video and digital) conducted by volunteers with participants in the movement. These interviews, which continue to be conducted, describe participants' efforts to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in the state of Georgia and relate to their participation in religious, political, and other organizations involved. Some interviews have been conducted with national figures and others on topics related to Georgia ERA ratification efforts.
This collection of digital objects is comprised of selected text and sound excerpts from each oral history interview. Each excerpt includes the name of the interviewee and the interviewer; the date of the interview and transcript information; a biography and interview abstract. Full transcripts may be accessed on-site in our Reading Room, or researchers may request copies. For more information on how to access a transcript, please read our Duplication Policies and Procedures or contact the Archivist.
