About The Tokyo Women’s Club

About The Tokyo Women’s Club

Known as the Tokyo Ladies’ Debating Society, our club was founded in 1908 under the direction of British scientist Dr. Marie Stopes. In 1913, it took on the name the Tokyo Women’s Club (TWC) and later gained affiliation with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in 1914.

The overriding purpose of the TWC is four-fold.

(1) The TWC members are dedicated to advancement of charity activities that provide funds for the donations made to nations and organizations in need of support and immediate help.

(2) The TWC promotes cultural interaction among various Embassies in Tokyo by utilizing the TWC's vast informal, as well as professional, networks.

(3) The TWC members are also committed to giving its senior members a plenty of opportunities to meet old friends and participate in an international environment.

(4) The TWC Concept encourages a commitment to assisting new residents of Tokyo in establishing personal and professional relationships.
