Descriptive Summary

Creator: United Tradeswomen (New York, N.Y.)
Source - dnr: Soloway, Irene
Title: United Tradeswomen Records
Dates [inclusive]: 1979-1984
Abstract: United Tradeswomen was founded in 1979 as an outgrowth of activity surrounding the entrance of women into the construction trades in New York City. Overt resistance to the entrance of women, persistent discrimination in hiring, and the on-going need for support for those women in the trades, prompted several women to organize the group. These records include meeting minutes, organizational correspondence, informational leaflets and handouts, program announcements and posters, newsletters, and internal memos.
