PENNSYLVANIA ELECTED WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION RECORDS
1 cubic foot
The Pennsylvania Elected Women's Association (PEWA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan network of elected and electable women. Rather than offer support or opposition to a political candidate or party, the PEWA works to expand the potential for women in elected offices.
The Association was created in March 1980 at a conference of elected women sponsored by Carlow College. The PEWA aims to provide a better government for all and has established several goals: to increase effectiveness among elected women; to provide resource and information sharing about campaigns, process of government, and the complexities of community management; to increase participation by women in the political process and community affairs; and to achieve greater cooperation and closer communications.
The records include:
Annual Meeting Minutes
Bylaws, June 1, 1985
Gender Balance Bill H.B. 1286 Pamphlets
National Directory of Women Elected Officials, 1985
