The Lesbian Herstory Archives

Title

Description

The Lesbian Herstory Archives exists to gather and preserve records of Lesbian lives and activities so that future generations will have ready access to materials relevant to their lives. The process of gathering this material will uncover and collect our herstory denied to us previously by patriarchal historians in the interests of the culture which they serve. We will be able to analyze and reevaluate the Lesbian experience; we also hope the existence of the Archives will encourage Lesbians to record their experiences in order to formulate our living herstory.

We will collect and preserve any materials that are relevant to the lives and experiences of Lesbians: books magazine journals news clippings (from establishment Feminist or lesbian media) bibliographies photos historical information tapes films diaries oral histories poetry and prose biographies autobiographies notices of events posters graphics and other memorabilia.
