BIOGRAPHY

Joan Hull was coordinator of the National Organization for Women's Task Force on Compliance and Enforcement in the early 1970s. Following her term as coordinator, she remained involved with the task force. She worked as a merchandising manager in Celanese Corporation's fibers division.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection consists mainly of correspondence; there are also clippings and printed material. It reflects the activities of the National Organization for Women's Task Force on Compliance and Enforcement, primarily in regards to employment and affirmative action. Task Force efforts to attain equal treatment for women are reflected in their attempts to rally stockholders to influence company policies on women. There are several folders of correspondence containing requests for information concerning a variety of topics. Many of the letters contain Hull's responses, indicating whether or not NOW had any involvement in that area.
Folder headings are those of Hull unless otherwise noted; archivist's headings and notes are in square brackets. Folders are arranged chronologically. All printed material by or about Hull, as well as all printed material with annotations, has been kept in the collection. Other NOW publications and reports, except those created by Hull, were transferred to the NOW records in the Schlesinger Library. Non-NOW printed material produced by mainstream organizations and publications was discarded; leaflets and other ephemera of small, transient organizations were retained.
