We believe that it is the duty and responsibility of women to know their history, and maintain the hard-fought gains that were achieved by the first wave of the Women's Suffrage Movement more than 92 years ago. We are committed to carry forward the torch of women's equity and equality to succeeding generations of women. We accept the inequality of women's lives and circumstances that makes it mandatory for women to actively protect their rights. We are dedicated to preparing young women to serve their communities through leadership training and community service.
