Summary

The Civic League was inaugurated in Sydney on 25 October 1907 by members of the Women's Club with the objects to inform and organize public sentiment in civic matters and to promote the study, careful framing and systematic agitation of measures of social improvement. It was resolved in 1909 to reconstruct the Civic League on a wider basis outside the Club.
