The Junior League of Nashville began in 1922 with a group of women determined to make a difference. Women had received the right to vote two years prior, but opportunities outside the home were still few. The Junior League provided a place for these women to grow their talents and give back to their city.
The League became a special place for women to flourish into thoughtful and seasoned leaders who learned how to take on the toughest problems of the day and work collaboratively with all involved to arrive at pragmatic and sustainable solutions.
Over the years, the League has had a profound effect on Nashville, as evidenced by the many programs we have founded.
Today, our League is nearly 1,500 women strong. True to our extraordinary legacy, today’s League members are at the forefront of addressing human trafficking and literacy, among other tough issues.
Special thanks to Jillian Frist and Jordan Waldron for directing the centennial advisory and planning committee. Members included:
