The Catholic Women's League (CWL) is a Roman Catholic lay organisation founded by Margaret Fletcher aimed at women in England and Wales.[1]Through emigration in the past, the CWL may be found in some Commonwealth countries. It is especially flourishing in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.[2]
