Description: While some 1960s/1970s women’s movements in Los Angeles were inextricably linked to ethnic or national communities and movements, many White Anglo women from different communities came together to participate in groups that, taken together, was often referred to as “the women’s liberation movement.” These groups ranged from chapters of a national organization like NOW - usually characterized as a liberal feminist group - to smaller radical groups of anarcha-feminists, lesbian feminists and radical feminists. In Los Angeles, many of these groups were spawned at the Crenshaw Women’s Center (CWC), where NOW also participated initially. After the center closed in 1972, many of these groups operated out of the Westside Women’s Center (WWC), where Sister monthly newspaper continued to be published.
