The American Women project is a two-year preservation and access project funded by a matching grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) at the National Archives (NARA). The project documents the emergence and evolution of the Women’s movement in the United States, as well as the unique role Pacifica Radio played by providing a place for women to create and air programming that communicated their movement.
