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! These three were recorded in the 1960’s, before the Women’s movement really began to take steam, highlighting how unique Pacifica Radio content was at this time, and how lucky we are to have these recordings in our collection.
These tapes are being sent to George Blood, L.P. in Philadelphia to be digitally preserved in the next few weeks, and digital versions will be available for listening in the upcoming months. In the meantime, listen to a special Women’s Day From The Vault recording–Anais Nin in conversation with Judy Chicago–HERE.
Happy International Women’s Day!
