100 years of WI campaigns
2018 marks a century since members passed the first WI resolution. Find out how you can commemorate this special year with your WI.
On 24 October 1918 at the NFWI’s second Annual Meeting, WI members passed the WI’s first resolution, calling for the provision of a sufficient supply of convenient and sanitary houses.
This was just the beginning. Over the last 100 years, WI members have campaigned on an incredible range of social policy, health, food and agriculture, education, environment and international causes. By exerting their individual and collective influence, WI members have increased public awareness of the issues and brought about important policy changes.
