Videos Prepared for the 100thAnniversary
The 100thAnniversary Video
The 100thAnniversary video touches on some of CFUW’s achievements and covers 1903 to present day, including such milestones as 1903 when the first University Women’s Club was founded; 1922 when scientist Marie Curie visited Niagara Falls and CFUW assisted in raising $ 100,000 for the radium to be used in her work; 1947 when CFUW promoted women to be on parole boards and as probation officers; 1967 when CFUW President Laura Sabia forged a women’s coalition to lobby the federal government which led to the creation of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women to the present day where CFUW clubs and the Charitable Trust are providing $1 million annually in scholarships, fellowships and bursaries to women and girls.

The Scarf Video
While in New York at UNCSW61, some of the CFUW delegates put a CFUW 100th Anniversary scarf around the neck of the defiant girl in front of the iconic bull on Wall Street. This gesture generated a request by Cheryl Hayles, former VP of International Relations, to CFUW clubs to “scarf” women statutes and monuments with a CFUW scarf in Canada and around the world in honour of the organization’s 100thanniversary. The final video is a tribute to women commemorating their numerous achievements
