Power of Potential: Photographs of the 1925 National Business and Professional Women’s Convention

Aug 25, 2019 @ 10:00am   Events, Member Events

The National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs (NFBPWC) held their seventh annual convention in Portland during July 12 to July 18, 1925. Over 2,000 working women from around the country visited the city. The week’s events included daily conferences, networking opportunities, and social outings highlighting Maine’s “Vacationland.” Throughout the week, the Portland Evening Express documented the convention, highlighting activities through articles and featured photographs.

This exhibition features images from Evening Express’ coverage, which are part of the Portland Press Herald glass negative collection at Maine Historical Society.

The NFBPWC was established in July 1919 – eight months before the 19th Amendment allocated voting rights for many American women. From suffrage to the glass ceiling, the organization continues to empower and mentor professional women.
