Title: Texas International Women's Year Coordinating Committee records
Description: The Texas International Women's Year (IWY) Coordinating Committee, also known as the Texas Coordinating Committee, was created by Congress in December 1975 with the passage of Public Law 94-167 (HR 9924) for the purpose of holding state meetings to elect delegates and adopt resolutions that promoted equal rights for women to present at the National Women's Conference. The committee planned and held the Texas Women's Meeting in Austin from June 24 to 26, 1977, at which participants voted on delegates and resolutions for the National Women's Conference held in Houston that year. Records of the committee are attendee registration forms, correspondence, delegate nomination forms, memorandums, interviews, resolutions, publications, press material, minutes, photographs, rules and procedures, reservations, budgets, audio and video recordings, résumés, voting tally sheets, maps, buttons, exhibit panels, photo negatives, and slides, dating 1971-1978, bulk 1977. A portion of the records have been digitized and are part of the Texas Digital Archive.
