Atria Institute on Gender Equality and Women's History: Collection Highlights

Located in Amsterdam, the Atria Institute on Gender Equality and Women's History describes itself as "a national knowledge institute [that] collects, manages and shares the heritage of women and, on the basis of research and facts, promotes equal treatment of women and men in all diversity." Here, readers can explore highlights from Atria's extensive collections, many of which stem from the International Archives for the Women's Movement founded in 1935 at the end of first-wave feminism. These highlights showcase 80 objects from Atria's collections and include multiple items from the Aletta Jacobs collection, which features the Netherlands' "most prominent feminist" and has been recognized by UNESCO with inclusion in its Memory of the World Register. In addition to these and other first-wave artifacts, such as books and pamphlets from the Dutch Association for Women's Suffrage, these highlights also include objects from feminism's second wave, such as postage stamps from Rwanda issued for International Women's Year in 1975. Each item highlighted includes one or more images and a brief description in English. While this section of Atria's website does not include options for more detailed searching specifically within the highlights, they are enjoyable to browse, and Atria's entire website is searchable for those interested to learn more.
