Conventions, tenth, 1928

Scope and Contents

Materials documenting the student, industrial, and business and professional assemblies at the Tenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. Each convention the departments gather to discuss matters unique to their group and of national importance. Industrial, and Business and Professional Assemblies address the progress made in employment for women, the goals for the future status of employed women and cooperation with other organizations. At the Industrial Assembly the delegates discuss cooperation with unions and other labor movement groups, law and legislation concerning employment practices and working conditions, and racism and discrimination in work environments. The Student Assembly discusses the role of religion in the student movement, the purpose statement of local associations and the alternate membership basis for membership.
