National Council of French Women (CNFF)

18.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The CNFF was founded in 1901 from the merger between the Congress of Women’s Institutions and the Congress on the Status and Rights of Women. It is indeed at the beginning of the XXth century, on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1900 in Paris, that numerous congresses and feminine meetings gather.

The goal of the CNFF is to affirm the place and role of women in society, to ensure that their rights are respected and to contribute to the building of a world of solidarity where women are represented in collaboration and in consultation with member associations.
