Women's March Oral History Project

The Stanford Community Women’s March Oral History Project captures the testimonies of members of the Stanford community who attended the Women’s March on Washington or any of the companion marches held around the world on January 21, 2017. A historically significant event, the 2017 women’s marches are considered to have been the largest day of protest in United States history.

The Stanford Historical Society Oral History Program organized the project as part of its effort to document the history of the university from multiple perspectives and to conduct projects that address recent historical happenings. Interviews were conducted in the spring and summer of 2017. Twenty-one women participated, including undergraduate students, graduate students, alumnae, faculty, and staff.
