The Business and Professional Women's Foundation has a history dating back to 1919 when the U.S. government decided to establish a Woman's War Council, which was responsible for organizing the resources of working women. The foundation advocates for causes that impact professional women such as legislative efforts to protect women in the workplace, ending discrimination based on sex and marital status, and equal pay for equal work. Other issues the foundation continues to support are programs for women veterans, healthcare reform, tort reform, the "glass ceiling," and raising the minimum wage.
