Women's Archive Wales

Archif Menywod Cymru / Women's Archive Wales aims at raising the profile of women in Welsh history and safeguarding the sources of women's history. It collects papers, visual and audio material, and other records of women's lives and experiences and deposits them in repositories such as national and county archives for safe-keeping and public access. It holds regular events all over Wales every year, undertakes important projects, including several pioneering lottery-funded projects, on themes relating to women's history, and has created Women's Heritage Trails in numerous Welsh towns.

Women's Archive Wales welcomes membership from anyone who has a strong interest in the history of women in Wales. Membership and other details are available on the WAW website:
