Title: Mobilization for Survival: Feminist Task Force records
Dates:1985-1987
Call Number:M140

Scope and Content Note

This collection features the history and minutes of the Boston Mobilization for Survival's Feminist Task Force. It also contains member lists and contact information. Other highlights of this collection include flyers and a press release of activities and forums sponsored between 1985 and 1987 outlining the Task Force's priorities and ideology. This collection also provides some insight into the political debates of the Boston Mobilization for Survival with copies of its organizational evaluation, compiled by its evaluation task force in 1985 and coordinating committee materials from the same period. This collection contextualizes the organization of the Feminist Task Force and the politics of the Boston chapter of Mobilization for Survival. Though the collection is small in size and limited in scope, these papers capture the energy invested by Task Force members and the causes they supported during the mid-1980s.
