Correspondence from Brevard County NOW, West Brevard County NOW, and Central Brevard County NOW from 1973-1980.[1]


This folder contains a large number of documents from Ft. Myers NOW spanning almost a decade of organizing. The collection of documents in this folder detail the convening of the chapter by Mary Baldauf in 1973,[2] sex discrimination complaints filed with the EEOC,[3] protests against the 1980 Miss USA Pageant in 1980[4] and much work on ERA ratification.

The documents end in 1979 and do not point to a chapter dissolution or stagnation in membership numbers.
