Founded in 1919, the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. (BPW/USA) was the first national organization formed to promote equality for women in the workplace. In 2009, BPW/USA merged with the BPW Foundation (founded in 1956), and includes a network of over 12,000 workingwomen in hundreds of cities and towns across the country.
BPW/MD encompasses members from every profession and walk of life. Throughout the years, three major issues have shaped BPW/USA’s legislative agenda: elimination of gender discrimination in employment, the principle of equal pay, and the need for a comprehensive equal rights amendment.
