United Society of Friends Women

What is USFW?

Purpose:
  • Enlist and unite all women in Christian fellowship and service;
  • Work cooperatively with constituent Yearly Meetings, associations, and members-at-large (women who are interested in the goals and works of the organization, but are not members of a local society);
  • Share in the mission of the church everywhere;
  • Stimulate spiritual growth;
  • Cultivate Christian stewardship;
  • Nurture education for mission among Friends of all ages.
History:

Formed in 1881 by Eliza Armstrong Cox and others responding to a concern among Friends Women for missionary work.
“The vision (of founder, Eliza Armstrong Cox) is still gripping us, leading us on. We still grow, altering our methods to fit the times, but nourishing the seed as it grows.”
