Biographical Note

The Cuban Women's Club is a women's social club founded in Miami in 1969. Catering to a middle-class demographic, the club was modeled after Havana's Liceo Cubano and sponsored "luncheons, conferences, art exhibitions, and literary contests" as well as actively supporting charities and fundraising for the community.

By the mid-1970s, the organization's goals eventually expanded to address "issues pertinent [to members'] careers and their new roles in society," including conferences on "bilingual education, voting and political representation, salaries and the workplace." The club would grow to eventually accept members from all nationalities and professional and educational backgrounds.
