In the spirit of coming together to recognize our dynamic past and exciting future, GFWC is excited to host a special video contest. Each of the three finalist submitted a video answering the question, “What does being a GFWC clubwoman mean to you?” Now, clubwomen across the nation are invited to vote for their favorite video. The finalist are encouraged to share their submission with friends, family, and their community and encourage them to vote! Voting will take place from May 15 to May 31. Contest rules allow for a maximum of one voter per person, per day. The winning club will receive a $100 gift card for the GFWC Marketplace.

Minnie Bell Johnson
Minnie Bell Johnson is described by her fellow clubwomen as the happiest person they know, with a smile that brightens the whole room. Having just celebrated her 100th birthday, she has many reasons to smile. During her time with the Portland Woman’s Club (Oregon), she has served as both the club treasurer and club president. She’s still an active member to this day, voting on issues and club elections, and participating in projects like handing out personal care products to homeless women at the Rose Haven Women and Children’s Day Shelter.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
