    Biographical history

    Anne Roberts became a member of the Vancouver Women's Caucus in 1969. She worked on The Pedestal, a feminist newspaper published by the Women's Caucus, and participated in the working women's group. Roberts played a key role in organizing the Indo-Chinese Women's Conference, held in Vancouver in 1971. The conference brought together Canadian, American, and Indo-Chinese women to protest the Vietnamese War. Roberts was interviewed by Frances Wasserlein for her 1990 master's thesis, "An Arrow Aimed at the Heart" The Vancouver Women's Caucus and the Abortion Campaign 1969-1971. The transcript of that interview is contained in the Frances Wasserlein fonds, F-162.
