On the occasion of International Archives Week (7 – 11 June) the regional Catalan archives have made a compilation of their photos, videos, articles, etc. dedicated to women, called Women and Archives. Some of them are online for the first time.
One of the themes is ‘women and sports’ with photographs that you can see here. The above photo of girls practising gymnastics on the beach was taken in the 1920s (collection Ramon Godó i Franch).
