Series consists of records created and accumulated by Marilou McPhedran through her association with the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), a national organization promoting legal equality for women in Canada, founded in 1985. The records in this series date from the early 1980s to the mid-2000s and pertain to McPhedran's work as a LEAF co-founder, as a member and chair of the board of directors of the LEAF Foundation, and as a member and chair of the LEAF board of directors. These records are predominantly LEAF administrative files, files relating to various fundraising efforts of the LEAF Foundation, and resource materials for LEAF-related legal cases. Files include notes, correspondence, notebooks, memoranda, draft documents, agendas, minutes, financial statements, grant applications, magazine articles, newsletters, news releases, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, and photographs. Many of the files in this series were created and accumulated by former LEAF president Susan Tanner.
