Collections that #BreakTheBias

For International Women’s Day and the start of Women’s History Month, Archive-It’s web archivists explored collections that feature women taking action to break the biases in art, politics, and industry, curated by the web archiving partners at NYU Libraries, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the University of North Carolina Greensboro. Learn all about them on the Archive-It blog.
