Abstract:
Records of Women for Meaningful Summits, a social action organization based in Washington D.C. and initially established in 1985 as Women for a Meaningful Summit (WMS) to promote political responsibility and ensure a meaningful outcome of the 1985 Geneva summit meetings between U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the leader of the former Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev. WMS became fully incorporated as a non-profit in 1987 and the name changed to Women for Meaningful Summits/USA. Along with establishing themselves as a presence at international summits, WMS became a clearinghouse for the activities of other social action groups, peace organizations, and feminist organizations. The collection contains meeting minutes, bylaws, articles of incorporation, correspondence, financial records, summit and event materials, international relations information, media coverage, and records of partner organizations.
