February 8, 2012 -- DENTON — The spirit of The Women's Museum: An Institute for the Future will live on through its archives, which have been gifted to Texas Woman's University. The archives will be incorporated into the nationally renowned TWU Woman's Collection, the best concentration of resources on U.S. women in the Southwest.

The Woman's Collection, a preeminent research center for women's history, is located in the Blagg-Huey Library on TWU's Denton campus. TWU will incorporate some of the museum's artifacts into its exhibits and will provide onsite and online access to the archives.

Artifacts donated to the Woman's Collection reflect pop culture as well as organized movements -- from Betty Boop nesting dolls to political buttons for Geraldine Ferraro, Ann Richards and NOW (the National Organization for Women). Historical documents related to the museum's programs, exhibits and the museum itself also are included, along with artifacts from the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). TWU is home to the official WASP archives.
