Digital Collections at FAU Libraries - and other state universities

Digital Collections of FAU Libraries features a good primary source collection of audio files of people's memories, with some great recordings by women.

Florida Atlantic University’s Oral History Archives preserve the spoken memories of people from all walks of life. Conducted by graduate students in the Department of History’s Oral History Seminar, subject areas include World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, the "pioneer" experience in Florida, race relations, gender issues, and environmental history. Transcriptions, photos, and news clippings accompany the recorded interviews.

The PALMM collection, contributed to by multiple Florida universities, also has some collections about women.

PRISM (Political & Rights Issues & Social Movements) is composed of materials focusing on a wide range of political and rights issues and social movements including topics such as women's rights.
