Celebrating Women’s History Month: Carey Shuart Women’s Research Collection

University of Houston Libraries Special Collections is proud to celebrate Women’s History Month by highlighting several collections from the Carey C. Shuart Women’s Research Collection. We are happy to share materials from such diverse and inspiring collections, like the Houston Comets Memorabilia Collection, Stephen F. Austin High School Scottish Brigade Drill Team, Judge Vanessa Gilmore Papers, Top Ladies of Distinction, Minnie Fisher Cunningham Papers, as well as the April West-Baker and Marjorie Randal National Women’s Conference collections. The collections represented serve as a testament to the extraordinary contributions made by women everywhere throughout history. From the suffrage movement to women’s liberation, clubs, sports, and beyond, these materials provide a window into the lives and achievements of women who have shaped our world and the organizations they have created.
We continue to document, honor, and amplify the voices of women and to ensure their stories are never forgotten.
Thank you to archivists Polina Kharmats and Vince Lee for their partnership in the production of this video.
