The National Council of Women of the United States (NCW) is an organization comprised of women's voluntary organizations with a common interest in the social, educational, and political rights of women. Its primary purpose is to act as a clearing-house or information bureau for its members in order to broaden awareness of each other's activities and to increase cooperation and reduce duplication of efforts among them. Along with its affiliate organization, the International Council of Women, the NCW was founded in Washington, D.C. in March 1888.
