The National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) is “a multi-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women’s participation in the political process and creating a political power base designed to achieve equality for all women.” This group was founded in July 1971 in order to increase the number of women in all aspects of political life.
The Charlotte Women’s Political Caucus also began in the early 1970s, and some of its founding members included Betty Chafin Rash, Sarah Parker (later a North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice), and Elizabeth Green Hair. Many of its members were also involved with the League of Women Voters as well.
This collection contains documents, photographs, and audio/visual materials. Materials are in good condition and dated 1974-2000.
