Women for Racial and Economic Equality was founded in 1975. The organization worked to promote the end of race and sex discrimination in hiring, pay, and promotion practices, as well as quality integrated public education and federally funded comprehensive child care; peace and solidarity with women of all countries; passage of the Women’s Bill of Rights; and legislative initiatives to guarantee economic independence and social equality. The group included Task Forces on Affirmative Action, Child Care and Education, and Peace and Solidarity, as was affiliated with Women’s International Democratic Federation. This collection includes records of their administrative and outreach activities, as well as files on subjects of interest to the group.
