From The Collection: WomanCare Clinics
& Planned Parenthood Collection

The WomanCare Clinics & Planned Parenthood Collection contains 9 boxes of material related to anti-abortion and pro-choice activist efforts from 1986 to 1997.

 

This collection primarily documents pickets, rallies, and demonstrations near Sixth Avenue Medical Center/Clinic, Balboa Park, and 5th Avenue Building. The majority of the collection consists of photos, but also includes other various materials (film roll negatives, slides, abortion related pamphlets, feminist reading lists, scrapbooks with photos and newspaper clippings, and documents with legal and security information). A large part of the collection was perhaps acquired from police security records and Planned Parenthood in Riverside and San Diego.

 

These resources are important records that portray the development of the feminist health movement in California from the 1970s to the late 1990s.
