Irene Knysh was a feminist, journalist, and author of many books on the Ukrainian women’s movement.  Throughout the course of her illustrious writing career, Knysh corresponded with leaders of the Ukrainian women's movement in Canada and the United States, most notably Stefaniia Abrahamovs'ka, one of the founding members of the Ukrainian National Women's League of America.  Knysh also corresponded with famed Ukrainian dance instructor, Vasil' Avramenko.

This digital collection features items from the Irene Knysh fonds, many of which were acquired by Knysh during the course of her research.  Items featured in the collection include the original record book of the Ukrainian Women's Association of Canada (1930-1931) and photographs of Irene Knysh, Stefaniia Abrahamovs'ka, members of the National Women's League of America (SUA - Soiuz Ukrainok Ameryky), and Vasil' Avramenko.
