Established in 1918, INFBPW was the first among women’s organizations to formally endorse the Equal Rights Amendment in 1937.  INFBPW has been legislatively active ever since.  INFBPW supports all women through legislation, leadership, education and stewardship.  As a member, you will have the opportunities to benefit and grow in all of these areas and network with our local organization membership.  Membership is available in one of our many local organizations in the state or as a state member-at-large.
