Help preserve history: Seeking photos and signs from the Binghamton Women’s March

IMarchFor

We’re asking for your help in preserving local women’s history! The Libraries is documenting and collecting items from the Women’s March that took place in our community this year on Saturday, January 21.

Items from other women’s marches, attended by people from the Binghamton area, are also welcome.

Here’s what we’re looking for from the Binghamton Women’s March or other women’s marches attended by a local community members:

Photographs and video of signs and crowd scenes
If you’ve attended a local women’s march, or have photographs that you have permission to share, visit the Women’s March Submission Form and contribute a photo or video to the digital archive. Before submitting, be sure images are:

  • High resolution files from DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) cameras
  • Clear, not blurry
  • Unique, not-repetitive 
  • Camera phone images will be accepted, but use will depend on view ability
  • Questions about photo/video submissions to the University’s librarian for women, gender and sexuality studies, Nancy Abashian.

Physical signs, flyers and other ephemera/mementos
We’re interested in any of the above items used in the 2017 Women’s March or women’s marches attended by members of the greater Binghamton community.

Your support is appreciated. An assembled, organized collection ensures the preservation of this historic local event, which can be shared now and for years to come for remembrance, enjoyment and education of the campus and greater community.
