The Woman’s Century Club is a social club focused on women’s history, the arts, education, and community service. It was founded in 1891 by suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt, a protege of Susan B. Anthony.

Currently undergoing a renaissance, today’s Woman’s Century Club is a diverse group of women of all ages and walks of life. We offer monthly gatherings featuring either a luncheon or an educational or cultural program.

In addition, in keeping with the club’s longtime tradition of philanthropy, we award an annual scholarship to an outstanding female student who exemplifies the traditions of female leadership and service that the club’s founders sought to encourage.

Our gatherings have been held at Dearborn House, 1117 Minor Avenue, Seattle, since February 2015.  In 1925, the Woman’s Century Club built a clubhouse at 807 East Roy Street, and we hosted many social events and other activities there over the years. Declining membership and increasing maintenance costs forced the club to sell the property in 1968.  It became the Harvard Exit theater, and we continued to meet on the premises until the building was sold again in 2014.
