A new digital collection, the UH Women’s Studies Living Archives Recordings, is now available in the UH Digital Library.

This collection of 49 videos recorded between 1995 and 2009 document the Living Archives series. This series of events, sponsored by the UH Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program and the Friend’s of Women’s Studies, consist of panel discussions and interviews with topics covering diverse aspects of women’s lives in Houston and the issues that affect them.

The videos in this collection cover such topics as women in sports, female politicians, women and religion, motherhood, and breast cancer survival. Among the notable women interviewed are former mayor Kathy Whitmire, women’s activist Nikki Van Hightower, and former city councilwoman Eleanor Tinsley.
