Akron Women’s Organizations

Since antebellum days, women’s organizations have brought many improvements to the city of Akron, Ohio.

Some women’s organizations were committed to temperance; others were committed to supporting Akron service men away at war; some were organized to help working women.

Over the next few months, this website will tell the stories of many of these women’s organizations.
