Summary note
The Comisión Femenil Mexicana Nacional is an organization of women who enhance and promote the image of Chicana/Latina women in all levels of society. Founded in 1970 to organise and network with women so that they might assume leadership positions in the Chicano movement and their community, it helped to disseminate news and information regarding the achievements of Chicana and Mexican women. It also promoted programmes that provided solutions for the women and their families. The collection contains administrative and event files, correspondence, newsletters, articles, research, reports, conference materials, meeting reports, publications such as newspaper articles and newsletter, interviews and projects that reflect the effort and work of Chicana/Mexican women in the Chicano movement - women whose involvement is often obscured.
