Legacy of Leadership | Devotion to Nashville

League members and community leaders celebrated the League’s transformative impact on the Nashville community in the Spring of 2022.

The JLN Library Exhibit, The Junior League of Nashville: Making a Difference for 100 Years, will be on display at the Nashville Public Library’s Main location through Aug. 31, 2022 and JLN’s archives will be digitized and become a permanent collection at the library.


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 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 issues. Learn more about our history.
