Current Exhibit: 

California Women's Clubs: An agent for progress and community in the 20th century What started off as social gatherings and book clubs grew during the Progressive Era into a fully grown social movement. Women's clubs, formed by middle-class white women and African Americans, focused on social reform for issues concerning the country in the late 19th and early 20th centuries such as child labour, prison reform, suffrage, education, public health, and temperance. The clubs served multiple functions. For some women, the clubs were social gatherings and a way to connect with friends, for other women they served as a way to get involved community engagement and philanthropic endeavours and the clubs also  become a way for some women to harness their political and social power and shape public policy in an era when women's roles were restricted to the private sphere of home and children.
