Quick Reference

Founded in Canada (1897) for improving women's education in domestic science, the first UK institute was formed on Anglesey (north Wales) in 1915 and the first county federation (Sussex) in 1917. Written off as a wartime experiment that would not last, their determination to better the lives of rural communities led to rapid expansion. Their love of festivals has created a popular image confined to making jam and singing Blake's ‘Jerusalem’, but they have demonstrated that they can be a powerful pressure group for change.
