UCR / California Museum of Photography's Women Photographers website was curated by Karen Barber. The text was written by Karen Barber and edited by Ted Fisher, UCR / CMP's Curator of Digital Media. The site design was a collaboration.

The project owes a debt of gratitude to:

Jonathan Green, Steve Thomas, Kevin Boyle, Cynthia Morrill, Steve Clugston, Jen Christensen, Jennifer Frias, Kelly Kooser, Emily Briggs, the UCR / CMP web project beta testers, and all the artists, estates, and donors involved.
