Welcome to the AddF - Archive of the German Women's Movement

The AddF maintains an archive and a specialized library concerning the history of women and women's movements from the period between 1800 and the 1960s.

In addition to collecting, examining and archiving we aim to advance the still marginalized field of women's and gender history with our own research. A particular concern of the AddF is to spread the knowledge about women's movements and important protagonists publicly by organizing lectures, readings, concerts and exhibitions.
