TIP OF THE WEEK – GIFT A STORY OF HER
Gift A Story invites you to write about a woman who inspired you – your hero, your mother, or your mentor, and then gift them with a Certificate of Recognition from the NYC Municipal Archives, where their stories will live forever.
This project, inspired by the suffrage movement and run by the NYC Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS), will continue through the 2020 centennial, with a goal of 20,000 stories. Most women’s lives aren’t documented in official records. This Gift A Story program can help to ensure that the legacies of all dedicated women are celebrated and that they get the appreciation they deserve.
