Feminist Futures: Celebrating 50 Years of the Center for the Study of Women in Society

Knight Library

The UO Libraries is joining the celebration of half a century of empowerment of women with an exhibition and book display in the Knight Library lobby dedicated to the UO Center for the Study of Women in Society (CSWS).

The exhibition features original and photocopied documents, photographs, and personal narratives highlighting the beginning efforts of CSWS’s founders. A timeline of significant events and victories allows viewers to explore the center’s milestones and achievements.

Adjacent to the exhibition, the library presents a curated book display that reflects the center’s mission and demonstrates the literature of women’s empowerment. The collection includes a wide range of genres and disciplines, including texts in feminism and gender studies, biographies and memoirs, contemporary issues, and literature. Find additional CSWS research materials, reviews, posters, and more in Scholars Bank, the open access repository for the intellectual work of faculty, students, and staff at the University of Oregon.

The exhibition and book display were organized through a collaborative effort between the CSWS and the UO Libraries. This partnership included contributions from the Departments of Central Services; Collections, Discovery & Digital Strategy; and Data, Access, Research, and Teaching Services.
