Fragen project ;partners met for the first time in Amsterdam

European women’s libraries and scholars from all over Europe are working together on the Fragen project which aims to collect the most important texts from the feminist movements of the second part of the 20th Century.

In November a training was organised for all Fragen partners in Amsterdam. 33 women and men from 27 European countries participated in the training. In the context of this project, women’s libraries and academic researchers throughout Europe are selecting relevant feminist texts – such as books, articles and pamphlets – which have been influential in the development of feminist ideas in the 1970s and 80s in Europe. The objective of the project is to make information available for comparative research into the history of feminist ideas in different European countries. Aletta is coordinating this EU project. Fragen is a subproject of the QUING project (FP6 Integrated Project – 2006-2011) (Quality in Gender + Equality policies )
