The General Federation of Women's Club (GFWC) was founded April 24,1890 by Jane Cunningham, 30 years before women were granted the right to vote!
Jane was an advocate for women's equality and created a woman's group called Sorosis.
On the 21st anniversary of Sorosis's founding, in 1889, Jane invited women's groups from all over to a convention in New York City. From that convention, 63 groups formed into the General Federation of Women's club.
Since 1890, GFWC has impacted our country, serving to better our neighborhoods and uplifting communities.
GFWC Woman's Club of Clearwater was founded and federated by Mrs. E.B. Powell in 1914. We have been serving our community for over 100 years. If you are interested in improving and supporting our local communities, being a part of a culture of inclusivity and positivity, please consider joining us! We would love to have you!
