Collection Description & Creator Information
This collection contains pamphlets, articles, declarations, posters, and other miscellaneous items addressing a variety of women's issues in Peru, such as health, violence, labor, prostitution, ethnicity, grass-roots organizing, and political participation. The material originates from a wide array of sources, including non-governmental organizations, grass-roots organizations, ethnic organizations, state entities, and international institutions. The items were produced with a range of aims, including education and the advancement of political agendas.
The researcher should note the variety of institutions represented in this collection, and the differences in the types of material produced by each institution. For example, under File 4: Grassroots organizing, one will find both documents produced by grassroots organizations on specific local matters and material produced by NGOs, aimed at guiding local women's groups in organizing techniques or analyzing popular organizing tendencies. A similar pattern may be seen, in File 1: Community food programs and File 7: Indigenous women.
Additionally, it is worthwhile to note that the organization Creatividad y Cambio (found in File 6: Health, sexual and reproductive, File 8: Institutional profiles and reports, and File 11: Prostitution) is in fact an entity within Movimiento El Pozo (located in File 11: Prostitution).
The material is arranged into fourteen files, each covering a specific subject area relating to women in Peru. Files are generally arranged alphabetically by publishing organization; within each publishing organization, the items are ordered chronologically according to year of publication. In the case of File 9: Movimiento de Mujeres Ciudadanas del Cono Norte, the entire file is devoted to the numerous documents of one particular grassroots organization in a marginalized zone of Lima, the country's capital. The items in this file are also arranged chronologically according to year of publication.
In the case of undated documents, the symbol "s.d." is used. When brackets are used, they indicate an approximate year of publication. Undated items are either placed with other undated material at the beginning of the section, or among other documents whose dates of publication are approximately the same.
Material with unidentified publishers is labeled "Miscellaneous."
