Title

Response to Memorandum Regarding Budget Cuts for Domestic Violence Programs in Louisianna

Subject

Domestic Violence

Description

As an activist, Gehman contacted numerous politicians in an effort to influence policy and change decisions that may be harmful to women. Presented is one example of this outreach, as Gehman wrote to Governor Edwin W. Edwards concerning budget cuts for domestic violence programs in 1983-4. She states her distress in learning that funding for this program would be diminished, noting that domestic violence is an issue that affects the entire community. This paper is heavily stained, presumedly by an old newspaper which surrounded the paper in the folder.
