Source documents from the early years of the women’s rights movement – from an organization that advocated for women’s suffrage, education, temperance, and legal equality and included as its leaders Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Frances Willard, Julia Ward Howe, Lucy Stone, and Clara Barton.

This collection specifically documents the history of the NCW from its founding in 1888 and provides a wealth of information on early women‘s organizations, their approaches to social and political reform, and their advocacy of the importance of an international perspective. The collection contains the correspondence of members and officers; minutes, reports, meeting agendas, and programs; the files of conferences sponsored by the NCW, including programs, brochures, research papers, financial records and correspondence relating to the organizing events; printed literature, brochures, and press clippings from the NCW and its member organizations; and photographs of NCW officers and events.
