Summary

Following the establishment of the Union of Australian Women in the early 1950s, the Modern Women's Club donated its assets to the Western Australian (WA) Branch of the new organisation. The Modern Women's Club was founded in Perth in 1938 as a forum for free discussion on issues of the day. The WA Branch of the Union of Australian Women folded in December 1973.
