Who Matters? Women's History Edition is a story gathering + photography project intended to create a space, physical and online, where women can talk to and listen to other women. Come share a story about growing up in or living in Madison, particularly about being a woman navigating education, community, the workplace, a faith community, family life, or social life in Madison. The goal is to record short conversations with women about their history in Madison and how being a woman in various Madison spaces affected their experience.

Sign up to record a two-way conversation, where both people are sharing their experiences, or one person can interview the other. Sign up in pairs to record a short (5-20 minute) conversation and have your photograph taken by local artist Jennie Bastian.

Please call the reference desk at 608-266-6350 to sign up for a recording time. Recording stations will be set up and librarians will be available to help with any technical trouble-shooting and to answer any questions. For more information, please call the 608-266-6350.
