The Women's Club
The Women's Club is a female only organisation in Sydney, Australia. The women's Club website provides a history of the club.
On 1 January 1901 the Commonwealth of Australia was proclaimed in Centennial Park, Sydney. Later that year physician and welfare worker, Dr Mary Booth invited some women to meet at her Macquarie Street rooms to discuss establishing a club where women interested in public, professional, scientific and artistic work might associate. On 9 October 1901 a meeting of more than 100 women at The Women’s College, the University of Sydney founded The Women’s Club ‘to fill some of the needs of intellectual and academic women by offering mental and artistic enjoyment’.
As of November 2023 The Women's Club continues to operate.
