National Council of Women Memorial HousePrint Page Print this page

Building of the National Council of Women commemorates women who served in World War Two.

At the general meeting of the National Council of Women, in North Terrace, last night the executive of the NCW was empowered, by a unanimous vote, to proceed with the establishment of a fund to acquire a property in the city which would be known as the NCW War Memorial to women who served and who fell in the second world war.

The president of the NCW (Mrs. H. J. Lipman), who put a resolution to this effect to the meeting, said that tentative plans had been made to call a public meeting in the near future to launch a general appeal for funds to purchase a building which would serve as headquarters for the NCW and would also provide accommodation which was urgently needed by many women's organisations in Adelaide.
