Feminist Task Force | The American Library Association Archives
Name: Feminist Task Force
Historical Note: ALA's SRRT Feminist Task Force (FTF) was founded in 1970 by women deteremined 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) and 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 (1).
