CWC History

In 2018–2019, The Cincinnati Woman's Club celebrated its 125th anniversary. The Club was founded in 1894 by seven talented and accomplished women: Susannah Bailey Gest, Annie Laws, Sophia Beadle Mallon, Margaret Monfort Morehead, Clara Chipman Newton, Mary Prudence Wells Smith, and Katherine Bartlett Yergason. 

The Cincinnati Woman’s Club has been dedicated to supporting the community through educational and philanthropic outreach since our founding in 1894. Here is a sample of some of the external activities the Club has instituted and supported over the years.
