About La Jolla Woman’s Club
At the turn of the 19th century, La Jolla was a simple village sparsely populated by small cottages. Without the right to vote and to have legal custody of their children, women faced a number of issues. In 1894 a small group of women in La Jolla met to talk about current affairs and literature. This group, initially known as the Women’s Literacy Club of La Jolla, evolved into a large and prominent group. Speakers such as Helen Keller and Lucy Stone were invited to speak on a variety of topics including women’s suffrage and the lack of female representation in the American political system.
