To the women of AAUW Florida,
As you well know, the historical record has been dominated by the narratives of powerful men. Now, in this modern era of contention and hard-won progress, women are reclaiming authorship of history. You, the ladies of the American Association of University Women, have been recording your own piece of women’s history in your documents, your photographs, your scrapbooks. Thanks to your generous contribution, that piece of history will now be housed, preserved, and made digitally available through the Florida Gulf Coast University Library Archives and Special Collections. The Archives will be responsible for the proliferation of a new perspective on women’s history, both to our student body and to the public; but our work is far from done. We hope the generosity of the Vero Beach Branch will inspire other branches to contribute their own perspectives to the budding AAUW Collection in the form of interviews, organization records, and photographs.
Sincerely and with great thanks,
The Staff of FGCU Library Archives, Special Collections, & Digital Initiatives
