Kiwanis Board to Back Women

Associated Press

The board of Kiwanis International announced today that it will recommend that the service organization accept women as members.

Kiwanis International President Donald Williams said the board voted unanimously to support adoption of a women’s membership amendment when club delegates convene in Houston in June. He said Kiwanis, a worldwide service organization with more than 8,000 clubs and 300,000 members, would have to wage a long and costly legal battle to maintain its status as an all-male organization.
