The Overseas Education Fund was established in 1947 by the League of Women Voters to help women organize themselves to solve their problems and overcome barriers to their full participation in the social, political, and economic lives of their societies. They have worked worldwide to empower women by promoting women's leadership abilities, enhancing their abilities to use or changes laws, developing their entrepreneurial skills, and strenthening organizations that work on women's issues. The archives consists of correspondence, reports, minutes, subject files, photographs, and memorabilia of the organization throughout its history. The collection is unprocessed, but a preliminary inventory is available.
