Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the Industrial Assembly of the Eighteenth National Convention of Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. The Industrial Assembly convenes delegates representing industrial women to vote on and discuss national matters and to unite behind a common purpose. The theme of the assembly, "We have a job to do for peace," reflects the international outlook of the Industrial Department and the overall YWCA movement. In addition to issues of employment and the labor movement, the assembly addresses what it means to be a citizen and conditions faced by women internationally. Materials sent out prior to the assembly prepare delegates for what may be discussed and ask for feedback concerning issues faced by industrial women.
