Grande collecte sur l’histoire des femmes (nationwide collection of data on women in society)

Location of the initiative:

 FRANCE


Relation to Strategy 21 Recommendations:

S5 - Encourage and assess citizen participation practices and procedures


Brief description of the initiative:

On the occasion of International Archives Day, on 9 June 2018, the French Archives organised a new campaign to collect data retracing the history of women. Over 100 archive banks (national, departmental and municipal) throughout the country are taking part. The operation will continue all year long.

It is an ambitious project, aimed at documenting the mobilisation and commitment of women in politics and associations, the causes they support, their history at work and in the family circle, and their creative activities. A nationwide public appeal has been launched to collect and digitise archive data concerning women and their history. The data collected will cover every sphere of activity: political action, women’s causes, scientific research, artistic creation, professional activity, leisure, etc. Any person or family in possession of documents such as diaries, notebooks, handwritten records, letters, photos, tracts and posters is invited to present them to the partners in the operation, to save them from oblivion.


Objectives of the initiative:

  • To document women’s political and voluntary-sector commitment and mobilisation, the causes they support, their history at work and in the family circle, and their creative activities
  • To set a country-wide participatory data collection scheme in place
