International Women’s Library

Created in 2015, the goal of the International Women’s Library (IWL), formerly Women’s Knowledge Digital Library, is to support the spread of knowledge by and about women by providing a convenient digital portal of information about women, feminism, gender, and LGBT+, with a focus on justice, equality, and empowerment for women around the world.

It is a partnership of the UW System Gender & Women’s Studies Librarian’s Office; Women’s Knowledge International; UW System Women’s & Gender Studies Consortium; the UNESCO Chair on Gender, Wellbeing and a Culture of Peace at UW-Madison; and the 4W Initiative.
