J. Usery, Jr. Collections & Resources),
Efforts to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in Georgia and the second wave of the women’s movement (Donna Novak Coles Georgia Women’s Movement Archives), regional and national efforts to ratify the ERA and the second wave of the women’s movement (Lucy Hargrett Draper U.S. Equal Rights Amendment (1921-1982) Research Collection), women-centered and LGBTQ activist and advocacy activities in Georgia and the Southeast (Archives for Research on Women and Gender) and other social movements, especially in Georgia (Social Change Collection).
Georgia’s political heritage is documented in several of the collections as well as the Georgia Government Documentation Project.
