Administrative history

It appears that the Neepawa Business and Profession of Women's Club was established in 1955. The president of the club in 1955 was Nora Day. The objectives of the club were to enhance the status of professional and business women and to promote contact between women in business and the professions. The club had seven committees, which were the United Nations, Newsletter, Emblem, Social, Programme, Publicity, and Membership Committees. The Neepawa Club attended provincial conferences of the Business and Professional Women's Clubs and observed Business Women's Week. The club also hosted conferences itself. The club held local luncheons and picnics as well.

Custodial history


Scope and content

Many of the newspaper clippings relate to the status of women in Canada and around the world.
