California Women for Agriculture (C.W.A.)

CWA Founders

In 2009, The California Women for Agriculture (CWA) donated a series of historical scrapbooks which document the organizations' history, starting in 1975- 2003, and showcases the history of California's exclusive women’s organization that advocated robustly on behalf of California farmers and the agricultural industry, in educating consumers about agricultural affairs.

This archival collection is accessible at the Women’s Museum of California for researchers, students, and the general public. This collection is partially digitized and is accessible online. The online exhibit is comprised of a selection of digitized documents from the scrapbooks including, photographs, newspaper clippings, newsletters, as well as interpretive essays. The Women's Museum of California's finding aid for the collection is also included.

The finding aid and online exhibit can be viewed at
