The CWLU's Workgroups, Chapters, Projects and Sister Organizations

A list of the CWLU's workgroups, chapters, projects and sister organizations reads like a Yellow Pages for the women's movement of the time. You could learn to fix your car, play on a sports team, join a protest at City Hall for decent childcare, volunteer at Dwight Prison, organize a women's caucus of your local union, draw a feminist poster, or even go to Communist China.

The CWLU did have a formal structure with a steering committee and periodic membership meetings to set general policy, but the real work of the CWLU took place in small groups.

We are assembling descriptions of as many of the CWLU's associated groups as we can. Please e-mail us at infogal@cwluherstory.org with any corrections, additions, or comments. This listing is not yet complete.
