Our NHPRC grant funded American Women Making History and Culture (1963-1982) Project is underway and there are so many incredible programs on their way to being digitally preserved. Since we're celebrating International Women's Day this weekend, I thought I'd highlight some recordings of international women that I've come across just this week! Several were recorded in the early 1960's so it's obvious how important and special these women are, and how lucky we are to have recordings of them in this great collection.
