Included are calendars, conference agendas and reports, position papers, committee reports, and topical files of articles, class papers, clippings, and brochures on various women's issues, including the equal rights amendment, media, psychology, labor and economics, education, and theater. Many files contain Knauss's notes. Proposals and course materials for the CWLU's Liberation School for Women are included, as well as several course catalogs. Knauss organized extensive files on the Chicago Women's Health Movement and wrote a history of it.

Besides her drafts of this and other articles, there are files on several Chicago women's health centers and Cook County Hospital, the Bilingual Health project, the Chicago Women's Health Task Force, and other feminist health concerns in Chicago. The collection contains extensive files related to birth control and abortion, including material from JANE, the abortion counseling service organized by the CWLU. Knauss and others wrote a history of JANE entitled "A View from the Loop".
