The peak emotional moments for me came as I realized the role of BPW in advancing the cause of women over time. I also loved seeing the diversity of women, even in the early years of BPW. Best wishes for great success as you move forward on your full-length film! — Mary Ann Bella, ICA President
BPW: A History A Movement screenings are ongoing throughout the world
This historical film was developed to empower BPW clubs to not only remind members of their legacy, but to unite and inspire! Several BPW local and state clubs screen the film during their conventions, new member orientation, Women’s History Month, and during October in honor of National Business Women’s Week.
Women’s groups enjoy showing the film to demonstrate how a legacy group changed the world for working women, and continues to do so into the future.
Why do BPW’s around the world screen the film?
Directed, produced and narrated by a young BPW member, BPW’s all over the world show the film to not only educate and inspire, but also to lead a positive discussion about working women, what it takes to empower them to fully realize their potential in their careers, and achieve equity in the workplace. —more about why and how to screen the film—
What’s not in this film? The story behind the BPW International organization. In 1928 and 1929, the BPW/USA Goodwill Tours of Europe initiated the founding of what’s now called BPW International. BPW/USA President Dr. Lena Madison Phillips led the effort to found the International Federation of Business and Professional Women (IFBPW) in Geneva, Switzerland on August 26, 1930. The founding member countries were Austria, Canada, France, Great Britain, Italy and the United States of America. Dr. Phillips was elected as the first IFBPW President and served until 1947. Today, BPW International has become one of the most influential international networks of business and professional women with affiliates in 95 countries in five continents.
