Who We Are
The International Women’s Society was founded in 1957 in Lagos by a group of International public spirited women. Women are one of the most powerful agents in bringing about world change. When women are educated, healthy, and safe, they hope, they empower other women, lift up their families, their communities, and the world.
The International Women’s Society was founded to work for the advancement of women of all races, and to encourage and develop the common interests of women.
Its aims and objectives are:
A. To foster and promote international understanding among all people;
B. To work for the advancement of women and children in Nigeria
C. To help and provide cultural exchanges for women of all races in the area of home making, children, social welfare, health, home finance and education.
