In 1935, three women from different generations decided to join forces and founded the International Archives for the Women’s Movement (IAV) in Amsterdam. Rosa Manus, one of the founders of IAV (now Atria) stated: without documents, no history. The collection started with 300 books owned by Rosa Manus herself. With this new institute, IAV preserved the work of women and made their battle visible. Up to today, Atria is committed to sharing the stories of people who have been invisible.
