Women with disabilities -- United States -- Diaries
Found in 3 Collections and/or Records:
Carol Waldron (1925-2007) was a mother of four who divorced her husband, became self-sufficient, and was active in the Lexington, Massachusetts branch of the National Organization for Women (NOW) in the 1970s. She was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1966. This collection consists primarily of her personal diaries, which are extraordinary both for their completeness and their candor about Waldron's life and feelings.
The collection contains diaries, other personal papers, and writings of Sophia West, a writer, lesbian feminist, pacifist, and political activist who lived in a variety of feminist collectives in New York and California.
