I think yours is an extremely worthwhile project. Women have been written out of history for too long.

I agree that contact printing is the way to go. But dont be intimidated by the Azo/Amidol stuff, let alone platinum, palladium or carbon printing, which are highly esoteric and expensive processes which only a handful of people today have mastered. Any good enlarging paper will give you fine prints if you know how to use it.
