Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection is divided into three series: L.A. WOMEN'S LIBERATION CENTER, NOW, and FEW.
The collection was donated by Barbara Smith, a local activist in the women's movement in the 1970s. She was very active in the L.A. Women's Liberation Center (also known as the Los Angeles Women's Center) where she played a key role in organizing the Liberation School. Later she was active in the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) and with Federally Employed Women (FEW).
