History[edit]

Inspired by the creation of the International Council of Women in Washington, USA in 1888, a number of similar organisations were established in the various Australian states. The National Council of Women of Queensland was established in 1905 with 21 member organisations. Mrs J.T. Bell was the first president.[1]
