The fonds consists of photographs taken by Rosenfeld of the 1970 abortion rights march organized by the Vancouver Women's Caucus.

The march started on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery, went through downtown Vancouver, and ended in front of the Hudson’s Bay Company with "brilliant performance of the street theatre in which several of [her] friends were involved."
