Administrative history

The United Nations proclaimed the year 1975 to be the International Women's Year. In response to this, an Edmonton coordinating committee was formed, whereby local women's groups could get together to exchange ideas and work on related projects. City Council set up a steering committee to work with this group to select women volunteers working in the community who were worthy of recognition. Different categories were established and nominees were selected to receive awards from the City of Edmonton. The coordinating committee also supervised the preparation and publication of the Edmonton International Women's Year Anthology. This work recognized the achievements of many women throughout Edmonton's communities.
