Mapping the Long Women’s Movement is a unique Digital Humanities project that maps and indexes oral histories relating to the “long civil rights movement.” Not only does this project seek to demonstrate the relationship between women’s rights and geography in the US, but MLWM also asserts that the movement itself is longer, broader, deeper, and more diverse than it is traditionally understood.

Explore this map to discover a range of oral histories recorded and indexed around the US, with a concentration in the American South. This inspirational project was formed by the Digital Innovation Lab at UNC, demonstrating the importance of oral history and the need for digital archiving.
