Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Description:

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).
