2Title:  Women's Law Fund Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Women's Law Fund 
 Dates:  1972-1996 
 Abstract:  The Women's Law Fund (1972-2006), a non-profit organization co-founded by attorneys Jane M. Picker and Lizbeth A. Moody, both professors at Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, evolved out of divisions within Women's Equity Action League (WEAL) concerning the mission, structure, and funding of that organization. WEAL was a national organization founded in Cleveland, Ohio, and committed to combating sex discrimination and advocating for economic equality for women through education and litigation. The focus of Women's Law Fund was to fund specific sex discrimination cases and secure attorneys for litigation. In the first case supported by the fund, LaFleur, et al. v. Cleveland Board of Education, et al., the U.S Supreme Court prohibited the school board's mandatory maternity leave policy for violation of the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process Clause. The Women's Law Fund disbanded in 2006 having reached its goals. The collection consists of administrative records, agendas, charts, correspondence, financial records, forms, grant proposals, legal records, lists, memoranda, minutes, newspaper articles, notes, promotional materials, and reports.

7Title:  Women's Equity Action League Records     
 Creator:  Women's Equity Action League 
 Dates:  1969-1984 
 Abstract:  The Women's Equity Action League (WEAL) (1968-ca. 1989) was a national organization founded in Cleveland, Ohio, committed to combating sex discrimination and advocating for economic equality for women through education and litigation. WEAL was an offshoot of the National Organization for Women and took a more conservative stance on issues such as abortion rights and the Equal Rights Amendment. The organization's membership remained small throughout its duration but benefitted from the prestige of the high-profile women in academia, business, and government who joined WEAL. Growing out of WEAL was the Women's Law Fund, a non-profit organization co-founded in 1972 by attorneys Jane M. Picker and Lizbeth A. Moody, both professors at Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. The Women's Law Fund evolved out of divisions within WEAL concerning the mission, structure, and funding of the organization. The collection consists of administrative records, articles of incorporation, by-laws, correspondence, financial records, legal records, memoranda, minutes, a mission statement, notes, press releases, promotional materials, and other public relations records, and reports.

8Title:  Cleveland Women Working Records     
 Creator:  Cleveland Women Working 
 Dates:  1975-1981 
 Abstract:  Cleveland Women Working (f. 1975), founded largely by Helen Williams, was an organization of working women concerned about equal opportunity rights for office workers in the United States and especially in the Cleveland, Ohio, area. They addressed problems faced by working women by using documented research and active strategy. They counseled and educated women about legal rights and job problems, publicized unfair working situations, monitored government agencies which enforced anti-discrimination laws; monitored specific employers for compliance with the law; advocated for women with discrimination problems; and published special reports and a bi-monthly newsletter. In 1977 Cleveland Women Working merged with a group formed out of the Boston, Massachusetts, organization 9to5 News that became the Working Women Organizing Project. After another name change it became 9to5, National Association of Working Women in 1983 and maintained its national headquarters in Cleveland until 1993 when the national organization moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The officers and staff of 9to5 have been active in many different ways to further its mission, ranging from testifying before Congress to educating women through publications regarding sexual harassment in the workplace and other related issues. It ran a job problem hotline, helped to organize a division of the Service Employees International Union, and has been involved with various federal investigations and government hearings regarding employment practices and discrimination. 9to5 National Association of Working Women is still an active organization with chapters in Atlanta, Georgia, California, Colorado, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but is no longer active in the Cleveland area. The collection consists of agendas, annual reports, lists, newsletters, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, reports, speech texts, statutes, and surveys.
