Powerful Partnerships of Women’s Page Editors and Club Women

  • Kimberly Wilmot Voss


One of the strongest relationships the women’s page editors had was with the women’s club members of their communities. Women’s clubs had a long history—dating back to the early 1800s in America. Women’s clubs could be found in most cities and featured programming ranging from intellectual development to the educational needs of their municipalities. Most club members also advocated for social services including libraries and juvenile justice programs. The women’s page journalists covered the women’s events and causes. They also held publicity sessions for club members and rewarded them with awards for significant programming.
