- Membership organisation
The Women's Club was founded in 1901 by Dr Mary Booth to provide a place where women interested in public, professional, scientific and artistic work 'might spend their leisure moments and associate together.' The first committee also included Lady David and Rose Scott. It began with 100 members - rising to 807 by 1929. Within the Club there was a debating group and a Thursday Group, while the Sydney University Women Graduates Association and the Professional Women Workers Association were also associated with it. The annual reports of these last two associations are included with those of the Women's Club.
