Who are we?

The Feminist Institute (TFI) documents and celebrates feminist contributions to culture by preserving and digitizing archival materials for public access. TFI promotes information activism and gender equity by infilling the cultural record to reflect fuller truths.

Through our partnership program, our staff works closely with institutions, feminist creators, and organizations on archival projects with both physical and digital records. We then provide access to digitized materials from these partnerships through the TFI Digital Archive. Our partnerships fuel our programs, including digital exhibitions, events, the Alive in the Archive video series, and blog.

We envision a future where gender-marginalized individuals and organizations’ equal contributions to culture are known and recognized, and their rights are protected.

If you’re interested in feminist archives and legacy building, this is the place for you. We feature independent memory projects and interviews with their creators, personal digital archiving how-tos, in-depth looks at our digitization projects, and literature reviews on what the TFI staff is reading.  

In a time of misinformation, big tech + data, and the censorship that comes with it, it’s more important than ever to invest in community-based, feminist archiving as a means of world-making. We hope you’ll join us.
