A native of Chicago, Joy Picus was the first female member of the Los Angeles City Council from the San Fernando Valley. Elected to the seat in 1977, during her four terms in office she worked on pay equity, childcare and family leave, and environmental and educational issues. The collection documents these efforts and also preserves: administrative records; materials from her election campaigns; publicity, speeches, and news clippings; and publications and notes related to the committees on which she served.
