Women's Research Centre : Vancouver

This series contains documents related to the Women's Research Centre in Vancouver. The WRC sought to provide women with research and analysis that situated their daily life experience in a poliical context, and connected women's issues with labour disputes and workers' rights. For example, the WRC sought to provide information and support to women working in Northern BC (Fraser Lake, Kitimat, Burns Lake, etc.), and convened a Northern Women's Task Force on Single Industry Towns. They also sponsored workshops on services for immigrant women, and provided methodology on "how to study your own community."

International Women's Day Committee : Vancouver

This series contains material related to Yanz's work with the International Women's Day Committee (IWDC), a socialist-feminist group that participated in a wide variety of activist struggles, including reproductive rights, anti-racism, LGBTQ activism, and labour rights. The IWDC held biweekly meetings in Toronto from 1978 to 1987, and in 1987 changes its name to Toronto feminist Socialist Action (TFSA) to better differentiate the group from the International Women's Day Coalition, a larger group that organized events for International Women's Day. the IWDC sought to develop a specifically socialist-feminist policy and practice; for example, they offered picket line support for striking workers by organizing women's solidarity pickets, and argued that the liberation of women would require fundamental changes to the structure of society.
