WISG’s feminist library was founded in 2001, when it was problematic to obtain material on feminism, gender and sexuality even online. It was through filling this information vacuum that WISG began its work on gender and sexuality: along with creating a specialized website, that hosted a glossary of basic terms, as well as Georgian translations of small-scale academic articles, the organization began to build a library. It is symbolic that this initiative was supported by a donation from Ann Snitow, an American feminist activist and founder of the New York Radical Feminist consciousness-raising group. Ms Snitow was in Tbilisi at the time and, unlike many foundations, as an activist, was well aware of the urgency and context of the issue. For 20 years, the library has accumulated not only thematic literature, but also fiction. Founded through an act of solidarity, WISG’s library is open to everyone – community members, researchers or students interested in gender and sexuality.
