Scope and Content:
The Hillsborough County League of Women Voters' Papers contains materials related to women's rights advocacy, mostly focused on Hillsborough County or Florida more generally, including minutes from meetings, correspondence, general publications, and the League of Women Voters of Florida's State Board Report. The collection also reflects the League's areas of advocacy, and contains literature relating to the Florida constitutional revision in 1968, education, and the consolidation of the governments of Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa. More generally, the League sought to educate their members on local and national politics. The collection also contains materials from the Women's Equity Action League, a more conservative feminist group that focused its lobbying on fostering equality of opportunity for women in their education and careers.
