The National Council for Jewish Women (NCJW) was founded in 1893 by Hannah G. Solomon after she and other Jewish women were prevented from playing a substantive role in the Chicago World's Fair. Initially, the council worked to help women regain connection with their Jewish faith and to assist Jewish immigrants in becoming self-sufficient. Throughout the early twentieth century, the NCJW broadened its scope to other social justice issues, such as arguing for an anti-lynching law, and passing the Nineteenth Amendment. Current campaigns include an attempt to end domestic violence, a push for wider contraceptive education and access, and a campaign to safeguard voting rights for all Americans.
