Women's Movement Archives

THE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT ARCHIVES now has an office located at:
455 Spadina Avenue, Suite 205, Toronto, Ontario M4T 2P1.

The Archives grew out of the Other Woman newspaper that was printed in Toronto from 1972 - 1977. It has since grown and is part of the women's liberation movement in Canada. It is ours. It belongs to those women who are working in the: anti-rape, abortion rights, health, labour, lesbian, day care movements and all other struggles which give us more autonomy over our lives. All material is accessible and open to all unless donations have specific conditions to be closed to the public.

You can help us increase our holdings by cleaning out your basements, boxes and attics. The Archives will accept photocopies. Your correspondence with women active in other cities is also needed. Keep your almanacs and your journals. Nothing which relates to our movement should be thrown away.

It costs money to maintain these materials, so please make financial contribution to help keep our history. Spread the word about the Archives and send us names of women and groups who can be contacted for material.
