This website aims to make visible the research in archaeology and history that is linked to the study of the material culture of women while working to provide updated resources from feminist perspectives to all sectors involved in historical dissemination.

This site is also defined as a collaborative project between researchers in this field through a multilingual open structure which will make possible to incorporate gradually new graphical, textual, technical and bibliographical contributions. 

This website has been produced in the framework of the research project Women's Work and the Language of Objects: Renewing Historical Reconstructions and Recovery of Women's Material Culture as Tools for Values Trasmission (2007-2010), funded by the Instituto de la Mujer, and the project Material History of Women: Resources for Research and Dissemination (2010-2011), funded by the Institut Català de les Dones.
