University of Arizona Association for Women Faculty Records

The Association for Women Faculty was a faculty and academic professional organization which was established in order to monitor the status of women at The University of Arizona and challenge salary inequities and other issues of gender discrimination.

The collection contains constitution and bylaws, meeting minutes, committee files, correspondence, memos, clippings, financial records, flyers, programs, travel grant information, surveys, study results, newsletters, articles, essays, member lists, and faculty handbooks. Also includes information on related organizations, currently active commissions related to the association's interests (such as the Arizona Board of Regent's Commission on the Status of Women), and files chronicling the antidiscrimination lawsuit filed in 1970 by Dr. Shirley Fahey. Also includes files from the forerunner women's organization, the Committee on the Status of University Women, 1972-1979.
