Additional Information: 

Feminist organization Chicago Women's Liberation Union (CWLU) was founded in 1969 by Naomi Weisstein, Vivian Rothstein, Heather Booth, and Ruth Surgal. The goal for the CWLU was to end sexism and gender inequality so that women could grow and have better chances of holding positions of power. The CWLU also created programs devoted to women's studies and even developed a Liberation School for Women. The organization ended in 1977 after factional problems from within.
