The Sherna Berger Gluck collection is divided into three series. LOS ANGELES WOMEN'S MOVEMENT, WOMEN'S MOVEMENT - GENERAL, and COMMITTEE FOR JUSTICE.
Sherna Berger Gluck has been a progressive community activist in Southern California since the 1950s. As a graduate student in sociology at UCLA she challenged the McCarthy era restrictions against Communist speakers. She was one of the earliest local activists in the women's movement. In 1972, she co-founded the Feminist History Research Project, connected with the Westside Women's Center. As an oral historian she has interviewed women involved in the suffrage, birth control labor, and other progressive movements of the early twentieth century.
