It’s not just an office, it’s a home.
GFWC Headquarters is a National Historic Landmark located at 1734 N Street, NW in Washington D.C. The building became GFWC’s official headquarters in 1922. The building’s historic style has been maintained through generous contributions from members and friends.
GFWC members, political dignitaries, celebrities, notable professionals, and historians are among the thousands of visitors to have walked Headquarters’ venerable hallways since 1922. If you haven’t yet done so, we encourage you to visit us!
GFWC welcomes both individuals and groups for tours, available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Each tour lasts 1 to 2 hours depending upon the number of visitors. To schedule a visit, please email GFWC@GFWC.org. Walk-ins are accepted; however, GFWC recommends scheduling a visit to ensure the best possible experience. GFWC also welcomes students and researcher visits to the Women’s History and Resource Center.
An eight-year Air Force veteran, Penny has been a GFWC member since 2008, and is currently serving as the club president of GFWC Helena Woman’s Club (Montana).

GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club
Each year April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Kathleen Sweeney, Executive Director/Forensic Interviewer of The Child Advocacy Center of Tuscola County (CACTC), spoke at GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club (Michigan) monthly meeting and told members that 10% of the 235 reported cases of child abuse in 2017 in Tuscola County were from Millington Township, including Millington. It inspired them to take action with the "Color Me Blue" Project.
