GFWC Ossoli Circle
GFWC Ossoli Circle, located in Knoxville Tennessee, was founded in 1885 as a literary society and is the oldest federated women’s club in the South. Its founder, Lizzie Crozier French, was a suffragist who was inspired to create the club after visiting the Sorosis Woman’s Club in 1868.
