Overview of The General Congress of Women
Our Vision Statement
Growing The Collective Power of Grassroots Women Through Collaboration and Action
Honoring the 150th Anniversary of the Mother's Day Proclamation, the clarion call to convene a General Congress of Women, following the American Civil War, and the voice of the Suffragist movement that was well underway, we are proud to announce the launch of The General Congress of Women.
"In the name of womanhood and of humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women, without limit of nationality, may be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient, and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.“
The Mother's Day Proclamation by Julia Ward Howe
Our initiative is simple.
Member Congresses join us in contributing to the collective voice of grassroots women, arguably one of the most impactful voices and power of change.
Utilizing the Fruit of Life, a model found in all humanity and nature, with the influence of the Beijing 12 Critical Areas of Change and applying the compassionate protocol of care and caregiving, we believe the solutions to any of the world’s problems that you may be addressing can be accelerated.
Join us each month as we elevate each of the 12 Critical Areas of Concern
through the lens of our interdependence.
