This collection documents the work of Ronnie Sandler, an activist in the tradeswomen's movement. Much of Sandler's work focused
on expanding women's access to fields where they had not traditionally been employed, such as building trades and transportation.
The bulk of the collection focuses on Sandler's efforts to organize with tradeswomen's organizations to access funds from
the Intermodal Surface Transportation and Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991, in order to train women for nontraditional jobs.
The collection contains organizational papers and correspondence related to these organizing efforts, as well as numerous
manuals and reports related to women's employment. For digitized material related to all tradeswomen archives collections
