Be among the first to read and discuss the forthcoming article, "'Be Damned Pushy at Times': The Committee on the Status for Women and Feminism in the Archival Profession, 1972–1998" by Alex Poole, which will be published in the Fall/Winter 2018 issue of American Archivist. For more than a quarter century from 1972 to 1998, SAA’s Committee on the Status of Women (COSW) and its sister organization the Women's Caucus pursued an agenda that centered on encouraging the participation of women in the profession and in SAA; on redressing salary inequity; on sources for writing women's history; on networking through such initiatives as the women's roster and the Women's Caucus Newsletter; and on broader efforts to democratize the organization. The article traces the growth, opportunities, and challenges faced by the COSW and the Women's Caucus as well as the legacies of their efforts for current scholarly and professional conversations. The discussion will be led by American Archivist Editorial Board members Karen Trivette and Jennifer Meehan.
