Happy Women’s History Month!

What is it like to be 100 years old?  In about two years, we’ll all find out when our storied organization turns the Big Century Mark in 2019!

To start the historic countdown, here’s a timely factoid in honor of Women’s History Month:  While mobilizing for World War I, the U.S. government recognized the need for a cohesive group to coordinate identification of women’s available skills and experience. A Women’s War Council was established to organize the resources of professional women. As a result, the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs was founded on July 15, 1919.

For the past 98 years, BPW has made great strides in the workplace, illuminating and supporting such issues as the elimination of sex discrimination in employment, the principle of equal pay, and the need for a comprehensive equal rights amendment.

None of this could have happened without the enduring passion and support of our dedicated members. Now, more than ever, your critical voices need to be heard.  

You represent the hearts and minds of professional women all over the country, so please keep marching strong for your rights and pave the way for sisters to come!
