US women and feminists’ contributions to the Occupy Movement protest camps in New York and San Francisco that began in 2011 were both significant and marginalised. To reveal the feminist tensions within the protest camps, an interdisciplinary and intergenerational team used feminist archiving methods to create the digital Occupy Archive, a repository of more than 400 items that circulated within and beyond Occupy encampments. As a community-based archive, the Occupy Archive became a space to recognise the complexities of contemporary feminism for a broad audience of scholars, students, activists and the general public. The digital Occupy Archive extends feminist archiving by prioritising reuse potential and open access. It also reveals minimal feminist discourse as well as substantial feminist critiques of the Occupy movement, mirroring the experiences of women and feminist activists in Occupy protest camps.
