expand icon Abstract
In the early 1970s, one of the leading national Chicana activist organizations, Comisión Femenil Mexicana Nacional (CFMN), was created in Southern California. The focus of CFMN was to raise awareness of political and social issues that affected Latina women on a national level. CFMN felt that the role and well-being of Latinas were being left out of discussions taking place from the wider context of the Chicano movement. The Comisión Femenil San Fernando Valley Collection consists of correspondence, financial records, flyers, meeting agendas and minutes, membership rosters, newsletters, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, photographs, posters, reports, and videocassettes that relate to their chapter history and activities.
