PAST PRESIDENTS

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. International Women’s Society, Nigeria emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support women ans children, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 1957, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
