About sclc/WOMEN, Inc.
Dr. Evelyn Gibson Lowery understood the contribution of women in the Movement, while critically important, often went unrecognized and underappreciated. In 1979, Dr. Lowery, passionate about issues impacting women and children, summoned a group of women to her home. From this gathering, sclc/W.O.M.E.N. Inc. was born.
