Subseries 4. Other Legal Concerns

Scope and Content Notes:

NOW and Evansgardner were interested in all types of sex discrimination and did not limit themselves to discrimination in the workplace. They corresponded with several individuals and provided support and suggestions in a variety of situations, including sex discrimination in the public schools. They also kept current with court cases and laws and opinions related to sex discrimination throughout the 1970’s. Evansgardner also participated in several of her own court cases. After PHRC awarded a position she had applied for to a less qualified male candidate, Evansgardner accused the commission of sex discrimination. This subseries includes materials relating to legal disputes within NOW, court documents, correspondence, photos, and legal documents such as bills and orders.
