The survival of archival material documenting Conservative women is patchy, but despite some significant gaps, much of the archival record relating to the progress of Conservative women since the late nineteenth century has survived in one form or another. Besides identifying and preserving primary source material on Conservative women, the job of the archivist is to appraise and catalogue that material in an accessible and intelligible form, so that it can be made available for research. Every archival institution, including the Bodleian Library, has a sizeable quantity of material which it has acquired, but has yet to process and make available. The Party's decision to accept financial responsibility for the Conservative Party Archive (CPA) is the most positive contribution towards preservation of its own archival record since the CPA was established in 1978.
