Chicago Women's Liberation Union Herstory Project

In 1969, the Chicago Women's Liberation Union (CWLU) was founded. Recently, the CWLU created the CWLU Herstory Website Project to archive and share the history of the organization. On the site, its authors write that "by sharing our history we hope others are inspired to act today." It's a laudable goal; the site features everything from women's health videos to FAQ areas for students, teachers, and activists. In the Historical Archive area, visitors can view key historical items in categories that include Classic Feminist Writings and Art and Culture. This last section is a gem where visitors can view feminist buttons, historic posters from CWLU events, and materials from the Chicago Women's Graphics Collective. Visitors shouldn't miss the CWLU writings by topic area, as it contains key documents from the organization's history on family, health, sexuality, and work.
