Founded in 1867, YWCA Boston was the first YWCA in the United States, established by leaders in the abolition and suffrage movement to address critical social justice issues of the time. Today, YWCA Boston intends to incrementally reduce systemic racial and gender disparities and improve social cohesion in Boston neighborhoods where health, educational and safety inequities are most significant. YWCA Boston is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
