Scope and content

This series contains files related to the Feminist Action Collective and its actions from 1981 to ca. 1983. In 1981, Political Action Collective of the Ottawa Women’s Centre (PAC) was renamed the Feminist Action Collective. The group decided to focus their energy on women's work and workplace issues. “Inspired by the women's national strike in Iceland, we began to organize for a Women's Strike, wrote and distributed leaflets on sexual harassment, women's work, and women and new technology. We also supported the Ottawa Tenants' Council's Tent City, and provided strike support to unionized women at the insurance company, l'Union du Canada (OPEIU 225), and the British American Banknote Company.” (Wendy McPeake, letter of May 31, 2016).
