A Look at the Past: Women in Rotary

 by Franci Hart
When I joined Rotary in 1992, there were less than 20 women members in Club 29. A small club in Pasadena, California, in order to survive, admitted two women. And this started the movement to admit women to Rotary. Our presence became obligatory for Club 29 first by a national law suit, then the 1989 Council on Legislation decision.

According to Rotary International, “The 1989 Council on Legislation vote to admit women into Rotary clubs worldwide remains a watershed moment in the history of Rotary.

“My fellow delegates, I would like to remind you that the world of 1989 is very different to the world of 1905. I sincerely believe that Rotary has to adapt itself to a changing world,” said Frank J. Devlyn, who would go on to become RI president in 2000-01.

The vote followed the decades-long efforts of men and women from all over the Rotary world to allow the admission of women into Rotary clubs, and several close votes at previous Council meetings.
