Women Work! Records, 1979-2009

This collection spans the years of 1979-2009 and consists primarily of reports on the status of women in a variety of situations. These reports collect data on specific groups of women such as displaced homemakers and single mothers as well as offering public policy solutions for each given group. The reports are oftentimes further divided by age, race and financial status.

The collection also includes printed guides from past conferences and newsletters. Some topics referenced in these guides are pay equity, women in nontraditional careers, job obtainment, economic policy suggestions and appropriate skill training. The Women Work! Organization records includes the information binder for the All in a Day’s Work program that was created in order to organize for women’s economic power with funding from the Women’s Bureau, U.S. Department of Labor. The binder illustrations the types of public policy reforms possible from welfare reform to pay equity.
