We Share! We Care!
The idea for Quota International was sparked when Wanda Frey Joiner attended a Christmas “ladies night” party hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Buffalo, New York. Wanting to form a similar organization for women to join, a few weeks later, Wanda Frey Joiner and four businesswomen, Florence M. Smith, Alice C. Sauers, Ora G. Cole, and Jean Ware Redpath, signed incorporation documents forming Quota Club International on February 6, 1919, one year before the United States passed the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote and less than one month after the end of World War I. Because many women had joined the workforce and organized campaigns to support the troops, when the war was over, women wanted more employment and empowerment opportunities. Their enthusiasm propelled the organization to become the first international women-only service organization in 1925.
As an International Women Organization for more than 100 years Quota dissolved the organization on an International level in 2009.
