The Global Feminisms Project (GFP) originated in 2002 to create an archive of oral histories from women scholars and activists from four countries: China, India, Poland, and the USA. Its initator and coordinator is prof. Abigail Steward, supported by Kristin McGuire and Jayati Lal.

The GFP is based at the Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) at the University of Michigan, which is also the home for the USA site research team. The Women’s Foundation eFKa started to collaborate with IRWG in 2003. The results of this intense and fruitful collaboration include a series of ten interviews with Polish feminists and a book with edited transcriptions for these interviews. The book was published in 2005 under the title „Feministki. Własnym głosem o sobie” by eFKa . The filmed interviews with the transcriptions are available in Polish and English on the IRGW website.
