The photographs for We Are Women come from a wide variety of sources. We began by researching some of the largest repositories of public domain photographs on the internet, Flickr Commons, The Library of Congress, and Wikimedia Commons. From there, we located numerous sources of vintage photos from all over the world such as The Royal Library of Denmark, the Australian War Memorial, and the National Library of Ireland. State Archives such as the Florida Memory Project and Missouri Digital Heritage provided more rich sources of photos. In addition to internet resources, we scoured antique stores and personal photo collections, looking for photos we felt would resonate with our readers.
