Description
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.
Background
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.
