|Without an accessible archive of the women's movement in Sudan, women have remained almost invisible in the historiography of the country. The recent civilian revolution reminds us of their continuous presence in the Sudanese political and militant social life, which has yet to be documented. This project works to highlight the role of women’s in modern Sudanese history by documenting the rich narratives and publications collected by leaders of the movement over the past 70 years. The project is led by the Center for Economic, Legal and Social Studies and Documentation (CEDEJ), in association with the French Institute of African Worlds (IMAF), the University of Bahri/Khartoum, and the National Archives of Khartoum.|
