What We've Achieved

United Society of Friends Women International...

Formed in 1881 by Eliza Armstrong Cox and others responding to a concern among Friends Women for missionary work.

We have created a network of Friends Women around the world with whom we continue the mission of Jesus Christ.

We have established contacts in many Yearly Meetings who participate in the larger body of Friends United Meeting or FUM. 

Through our publication, The Advocate, members are kept informed of our activities.

We have continued to meet globally every three years in Triennial Sessions.  Our next Triennial session will be held in Kenya, in the year 2020.
