Welcome to the Global Feminisms Project at the University of Michigan!

The Global Feminisms Project is a collaborative international oral history project that examines the history of feminist activism, women's movements, and academic women's studies in sites around the world.

The current archive includes interviews with women's movement activists and women's studies scholars in China, India, Nicaragua, Poland, and the United States. We are currently working on adding interviews from Brazil and Russia.

The Project is based in the Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) at UM, which is also the home for the U.S. site research team. Our international collaborators include:
  • Laboratório de História Oral e Imagem - UFF (the Laboratory of Oral History and Images at the Federal Fluminense University in Rio de Janeiro) and Núcleo de História, Memória e Documento - NUMEM (the Center for History, Memory, and Documentation at the Federal State University in Rio de Janeiro), BRAZIL
  • China Women's University in Beijing, CHINA
  • SPARROW, Sound and Picture Archives for Research on Women in Mumbai, INDIA
  • Movimiento Autónomo de Mujeres de Nicaragua (Autonomous Women's Movement), NICARAGUA
  • Fundacja Kobiet eFKa (Women's Foundation eFKa) in Krakow, POLAND
Visit the site pages to access written transcripts and videos of the interviews, either in the original language or in English.
