Take Part In A Local San Tan Valley Club

Would you like to take part in the local woman’s club? The GFWC San Tan Valley Woman’s Club meets monthly at 33622 N. Mountain Vista Blvd. GWC stands for General Federation of Women’s Clubs.

Founded in 1890, GFWC’s roots can be traced back to 1868 when Jane Cunningham Croly, a professional journalist, attempted to attend a dinner at an all-male press club honoring British novelist Charles Dickens. Croly was denied admittance based upon her gender, and in response, formed a woman’s club—Sorosis. In celebration of Sorosis’ 21st anniversary in 1889, Jane Croly invited women’s clubs throughout the United States to pursue the cause of federation by attending a convention in New York City. On April 24, 1890, 63 clubs officially formed the General Federation of Women’s Clubs by ratifying the GFWC constitution.

Since 1890, GFWC’s impact has been felt throughout communities across the United States and the globe.
