Advertising Women of New York

Archived web site of www.awny.org/

 

The Advertising Women of New York, Inc., founded in 1912 by Christine and J. George Frederick as the League of Advertising Women of New York, was the first club for women in advertising in America and one of the first in the world. Organized as an answer to discriminating men's clubs, the League's objectives were the further education in advertising of its members, and the encouragement of greater involvement of women in advertising. From the 1930s on, the club gave classes and awarded scholarships to girls to enable them to pursue a degree in advertising. Annual dinners and dances featured speakers on good advertising practices and the future of the business. The club helped in the economizing campaign of World War II, and has been concerned with consumer work.
