    The former International Federation of University Women ( IFUW) has changed it's name to Graduate Women International ( GWI). The new name includes women with university degrees, and also welcomes members with different postsecondary education qualifications. We all share the vision and commitment to ensuring that every girl in the world can achieve education beyond primary school.

    CFUW was a founding member of IFUW in 1919 and we remain the largest of the GWI member clubs from more than 60 nations. For more information about GWI see  www.graduatewomen.org
