Alabama Federation of Women's Clubs Year Book 1919

[Birmingham, AL].

Softcover. Very Good. 115 pp, in original wrappers. Moderate soiling and handling wear to wrappers, some rusting to binding staples; contents clean. Includes list of officers, treasurer's report, resolutions, reports on meetings and activites of committees (art, civics, child welfare, education, publicity, literature and library) and advisory bodies, and a directory of clubs throughout the state. Women’s clubs first arose in the United States during the late 1860s, as middle- and upper-class women began to have more leisure time due to modern household/technological advances and turned to intellectual pursuits. They established numerous women’s clubs, many og which began as literary and/or music clubs, but many of which also supported social welfare goals, such as the building of schools, public libraries, and hospitals. The women of Alabama appear to have been involved in a wide range of causes.
