Women and Law

"Very enlightening. I used the rape bibliography for research on my book and found it extremely valuable."

BARBARA BABCOCK
Stanford University School of Law

From 1968 to 1974, our collection acted as clearing house for areas of women's law that lacked case precedent. It provided information on the de facto situation of sex discrimination in education, employment and the law as well as less publicized areas, such as housing, union, social security, divorce, etc.
  
The microfilm provides valuable research material gathered from mass, alternative and professional publications. These documents trace legislative proposals and their outcomes.
  
Statistical analyses of women in employment and in the professions and as consumers are also included.
  
The original collection is at the University of Wyoming, Laramie. This microfilm was made possible by funds from HEW, The Hancock Foundation and an Alameda County Revenue Sharing grant.
  
The Women and Law microfilm is available at California State University Sacramento, Northwestern, University of Wyoming, Harvard, Ohio State, Rutgers, University of Puerto Rico, Pueblo Colorado Regional Library, several law schools, community colleges and rape crisis centers.
  
Covers over 500 subject files pertinent to women and law.
