Aletta, Institute for Women’s history, the owner of database Mapping the World has launched her new name: Atria, Institute on Gender Equality and Women’s History
On 28 January 2013, at a festive ceremony in Amsterdam, the new name of the Institute on Gender Equality and Women’s History was revealed. It is Atria. This institute results from the merger of Aletta, Institute for Women’s History and E-Quality, Information Centre for Gender, Family and Diversity Issues. Both institutions have a long history of advocating for gender equality and women’s history.
Atria is the institute on gender equality and women’s history. It provides a deep understanding of women – in all their diversity – and their history: Atria identifies opportunities and challenges for equal rights and the empowerment of women. She brings these issues to light through her library and archive, as well as by publishing research, expert opinions and whitepapers and providing trainings for government, business and educational institutions. Atria will continue to maintain Mapping the world, the database of Women / Gender Information centres, libraries and archives around the world.
