Redstockings Women’s Liberation Archives
Redstockings Women’s Liberation Archives was formed in February 1969.
Redstockings was a name taken in 1969 by one of the founding women's liberation groups of the 1960s. The current group serves as a new kind of grassroots, activist "think tank", established by movement veterans, for defending and advancing the women's liberation agenda. The Archives for Action is a project Redstockings established in 1989 to make the formative and radical 1960's experience of the movement more widely available for the taking stock needed for new understandings and improved strategies.

View of the Family
Below are excerpts from Redstocking publications on the role of women as relates to the family unit and the rest of society:
- ""A central goal of women's liberation is that responsibility for family care ... be shared more equally between men and women and individuals, families and society as a whole."
- "the unpaid labor of women is what keeps this system going and how we need this labor to get paid and shared around...""
- "The "social wage," from public education to childcare to eldercare to national healthcare for everyone, are programs as important to freeing women from unpaid, unwilling service in the home, in the family and in the nation as is the right to contraception and abortion."
