The National Council Of Women Of Canada (NCWC)

The Canadian Encyclopedia
The National Council of Women of Canada (NCWC) is one of Canada's oldest advocacy groups
The NCWC was created by Lady Ishbel Aberdeen, its first president, in order to counter Conservative-Liberal partisanship and to foster bipartisan communication for the common good. At a time when women lacked the provincial and federal vote, the NCWC hoped to become a “parliament of women,” a council in which women’s views could be presented and debated.
