Women For: Orange County was founded in 1984 as a chapter of Women For:, the political activist organization based in Los
Angeles, California. The collection is comprised of organizational records, photographs and other printed items which chronicle
the group's activities from 1984 to 1998, including the Great American Write-In and the Suffrage Day Luncheon.
In 1984, ten liberal, public-spirited Orange County, California women came together to address the issue of how to be politically
effective in conservative Orange County. In an election year these women were particularly interested in having an impact
on the nuclear arms race, but issues of interest to them also included protection of the environment and equal rights for
women among other concerns.
