Event Feminist Task Force Business Meeting

Feminist Task Force (SRRT/FTF)

Business Meeting at the ALA 2010 Annual Conference

    8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

    Location: JW, Room: Grand BR IV

 

We will be meeting on Saturday during the SRRT All Task Force meeting.  Because of a scheduling error we will not be holding our usual second meeting on Sunday

ALA's SRRT Feminist Task Force (FTF) was founded in 1970 by women determined to address sexism in libraries and librarianship. FTF was the first ALA group to focus on women's issues. Other ALA women's groups fostered by FTF include the standing ALA Committee on the Status of Women in Librarianship (COSWL), the Committee on Pay Equity, the RASD Discussion Group on Women's Materials and Women Library Users, the ACRL Women's Studies Section, and the LAMA Women Administrators Discussion Group. The Feminist Task Force continues to be one of SRRT's largest and most active groups, concerned with a broad, evolving set of feminist issues.
