RoSa's Archives

The memory of the Flemish Women's Movement

The RoSa library does not only contain more than 30.000 books on gender and feminism. We are also the proud owners of archives from the pioneering age in the Flemish women's movement. RoSa wants to preserve and document this part of the women's history.

Apart from the archives made available below, we also have a number of not yet described archives in our possession. Contact us for more information.

Did you find a treasure while cleaning up the attic? Is the mountain of papers from your women's house taking up all your shelf space? Let us know and we will be happy to take it over from you.

You can consult all available archives during your visit to the RoSa library. Please notify us up front so we can prepare the desired materials.

RoSa also conserves an extensive poster collection which gives you a visual insight in the history of the women's movement.
