The AVG-Carhif is an archive and research centre specialized in women’s history.
The AVG realizes historical research, informs on current research in gender history and organizes activities to sensitize the general public on the subject of women’s history.
At the centre you can consult a vast collection of archives, books, magazines and pictures on women’s history and the history of the women’s movement in Belgium. Both women's organizations and private individuals can contact the AVG to make sure their archives will be kept under professional guardianship.
In 2015 the Archive and Research Centre for Women’s History is celebrating its 20th anniversary. In this year of celebration we launch a supporting network, the Friends of the AVG-Carhif !
