PREFACE.



IN presenting this Report to the Women's Organisations Overseas,
the Editors wish to express their keen sense of the shortcomings,
but at the same time their intense conviction of the importance
of the work done. The difficulties in the way of holding the Confer-
ence were very great, not the least being the uncertainty to the very
last day, of the character and amount of support from Overseas.
Warm thanks are due to the English speakers who, months before-
hand, promised not only to give addresses on the subjects which they
have made specially their own, but to speak so as to supplement, if
necessary, the contributions from Overseas.

The Conference has been educative to a remarkable degree. For
the first time delegates from the Women's Organisations Overseas have
met on the same platform with the leaders of the Women's Cause in
the Motherland. The meetings have revealed more clearly than ever
what we should gain if we knew more of each other's work, and how
great would be our power if we could demand with one voice the
reforms tor which we all are working, and on which we all are
agreed. Reports in the Press and comments by the outside world
have shown with what interest and attention the movement for
greater union among women is being followed. The Conference has
demonstrated that the astonishing unanimity of feeling of the men
and women of the Dominions Overseas is not confined to the needs
of the present lamentable struggle only, but that women as well as
men, even in the midst of overwhelming sorrow, have their eyes fixed
on the future, and are preparing themselves for the work of recon-
struction. More than that, the Conference has greatly intensified
the feeling of solidarity among women, and deepened the conviction
that we may not leave any longer for solution by one sex only, pro-
blems such as those which were discussed. We see more clearly
than before that it is the bounden duty of women to take a leading
part in the solution of all problems that affect the welfare of the race.
The conception of tfto sovereign position of the mother, the guardian
and priestess of the race, exists in a state of dim consciousness in the
mind of - -\> TV human being. We have now come to a crisis in
world-history, when this idea must be brought out into the clear
light of nason, and made an active, guiding principle in legislation
and administration. In all humility we believe that by the recogni-
tion and acceptance of our responsibility as women we J .h.i!l
not only the highest interests of the Empire, but the greater cause of
humanity.

\\'.- therefore appeal to all Women's Organisations Overseas,
founded for political or social reform, to make this report known as

widely a> possible. We invite every such organisation to join the
union. The greater the variety in point of view, the wider our com-
mon outlook, and the more helpful the discussion of our common
problems. We beg that all will begin at once to work with us in
preparation for the third Conference in 1918. It is quite possible that
in 1918 we may have to change our name, for the initial victory of
enfranchisement may have been gained, and we may all be free to
enter the vast field of work, the gate of which is unlocked by the vote.
As regards finance, the auditor's statement shows a small balance
to our credit. But the cost of printing and posting this report has
yet to be met. The expenses of the Union are still limited to those
of stationery, printing and postage. But the work is growing very
rapidly in importance, and presently an office and paid help will be
imperative. The subscription list shows that the work has been done
so far through the contributions of comparatively few, Overseas and
in London. We know that these have felt it a privilege thus to serve
the cause, but we know too, that every affiliated society and every
associated member recognises that expenses should be met by con-
tributions, according to means, from everyone.

CHAIR: MISS QUINLAN (Australia),
in the absence of Mrs. Leathes (Canada).

The minutes of the business meeting of the first Conference, July
9th, 1914, were read and signed.

The Hon. Sec. then read the following statement :

Owing to the outbreak of war the publication of a Report, of the
first Conference was postponed till a time when attention to it might
more reasonably be expected. The opportunity occurred a year after,
when through the kind co-operation of Mrs. Cecil Chapman, President,
New Constitutional Society for Women's Suffrage, a public meeting
was held, on July 6th, 1915, at Knightsbridge, London, in acknow-
ledgment of the gifts which had been received from Overseas for
sufferers through the war. A Report of the war relief work in dis-
tribution of these gifts, read at this meeting, was printed and sent,
together with a report of the first Conference and a summary of the
work of the Union during the year, July, 1914-1915, to all friends
in every part of the Empire.*

From December, 1915, to May, 1916, the Executive and Advisory
Committees met monthly, the chief work being preparation for the
second Conference, July, 1916.

At the first meeting of these joint Committees a request was sent
to the women of Australia and New Zealand urging them as enfran-
chised women to press upon their respective Premiers the duty of
publicly supporting the principle of Woman Suffrage during their
coming official visits to Britain. A full account of the vigorous action
of the Australian and New Zealand women in response to this request
appeared in the English Suffrage papers. It afforded a remarkable
proof of the solidarity of the women of these Dominions and those of
the Motherland. The members of the Committee desire to record
their warm thanks to their sisters Overseas for this help. The Hon-
Sec. B.D.W.S.U., in co-operation with the secretaries of the chief
Suffrage Societies in Great Britain, repeatedly communicated with
Mr. Hughes, Premier of Australia, during his stay in London, but
without result. Mr. Hughes declined to take the chair or to speak
at any meeting. Mr. Massey, Premier of New Zealand, had not yet
arrived in London (July 5th).

During the year, July, 1915-1916, the work of increasing the cir-
culation of all Suffrage papers and of women's papers devoted to

* Copies (price id. each) of both of these reports can be had on
application to the Hon. Sec.



social and political reform has gone forward. The Hon. Press Secre-
tary has written many articles for the British Suffrage papers on
women's work Overseas, and for the general Press Overseas on the
activities of the B.D.W.S.U.

Many orders for books on the Woman's Movement have been
received and executed. The Hon. Sec. for Literature hopes further
to develop this very important part of our work.

In connection with the Day of Prayer of Women Overseas for
Enlightenment in the present World-crisis, a service was held on
December 3151 in the Royal Chapel of the Savoy, London, by the
chaplain, the Rev. Hugh B. Chapman, and Mass was said in St.
James's Church, Spanish Place, by kind permission of his Lord-
ship, Bishop Butt.

REVISION" OF WORKING ORDER.

In view of the difficulties due to the continuance of the war, the
Executive Committee asked the delegates and representatives
assembled to confirm the constitution of the Union (July gth, 1914) for
another two years. This constitution is worded as follows (see p. 2
of First Report) :

" OBJECTS. To secure for the women in the British
Dominions the same political rights as are enjoyed by the men,
and to arouse women to a fuller sense of their duties and responsi-
bilities as citizens.

AFFILIATION. Any regularly constituted Women's Social
or Political association in the enfranchised Dominions, and any
regularly constituted Woman Suffrage association in the un-
enfranchised Dominions is eligible for affiliation.

Any person in sympathy with the objects of the Union may
become an Hon. Associate Member.

To avoid initial difficulties it was agreed that the Union
should be limited for the present to the Self-Governing Dominions.
AFFILIATION and MEMBERSHIP FEES were provision-
ally fixed as follows, the financial year to end July 3ist:
Societies numbering not more than 50 members,

45., or i dollar per annum.

Maximum for any Society ... 2, or 10 dollars per annum.
Hon. Associate Members ... is., or 25 cents per annum.

The work of consolidation was entrusted to the care of a
small Representative Committee in London. A report on the
work done will be submitted to a second Conference to be held
in London in 1916."

The request for the confirmation of this constitution for two years
was granted unanimously, with a kind tribute from the chair to the
value of the work done by the Hon. Sec. The Executive Committee
were re-elected, with power to add to their number.

In consequence of the decision to confirm the constitution, the
application for affiliation of the Mussoorie Suffrage Society, U.P.
India, was postponed till the third Conference in 1918. Meanwhile
a representative of this society will be asked to join the Advisory
Committee, and every effort will be made not only to come into
connection with India, but with women's societies in every
other part of the Empire.

The Advisory and Executive Committees desire to record their
deep sense of los* in the death of Mr-. Macintosh, one of the founders
of the B.D.W.S.I., .-md Pn-Mdent of the W.E.A.U. f S. Afri

mously to the members of the Advisory Committee who, in the midst
of tlK'ir \\n arduous work, have given so much time and thought
to preparation for the Conference.

REPORT OF WAR RELIEF WORK.
August, 1915 to July, 1916.

Since last August we have received :
114 Bales from the Sydney Babies' Kits Society, Australia,
39 Sacks from Queensland Babies' Kits Society, Australia,
2 Cases from Invercargill, New Zealand,
5 Cases from Lady Stout, Wellington, New Zealand,
i Case from Otago, New Zealand,
9 Cases from South Africa,

as well as some we have been unable to identify. Ten cases from
Tasmania went astray, but some have been found at the office of the
Belgian Canal Boat Fund.

The clothing thus sent has been distributed, in part to our own
people through the Infant Welfare Centres, Schools for Mothers, Sol-
diers and Sailors' Families' Association, Workers' Suffrage Federation
(Miss Sylvia Pankhurst) at Bow, Women and Children's Hospitals,
East End Mothers' Lying-in Home, whose 700 babies born in 1915-
1916 we have helped to clothe, etc. We have also sent to Scotland,
Ireland, and Wales, besides relieving innumerable private cases.

By far the larger quantity, however, has been sent to our Allies.

To Belgium. Furnes and Chateau des Vieux, through the Canal

Boat Fund.

King Albert Civilian Hospital Fund at La Panne.
Interned Belgian Soldiers' Families in Holland.
National Committee of Relief in Belgium.
Society of Friends' War Victims Committee.
French Red Cross.
French Relief Fund.
Vestiare Marie-Jos6, through Dr. and Mrs. Haden

Guest.

We have only been able to send a limited number of things to
Russia for the relief of Polish refugees, much to our regret, owing
to the enormous difficulties and expense of transport.

We have been more fortunate with Serbia. Through the kind
offices of the Serbian Relief Fund, who have organised refugee
colonies in Corsica and Southern France, we have been able to send
several bales of beautiful babies' kits, principally for the officers'
wives, who now dress their babies in the English fashion instead of
in swaddling clothes.

A considerable sum of the money sent for relief has been expended
on milk for babies and education and care of young children.

We have received many letters of gratitude, far in excess of any-
thing our efforts deserve. Thanks are due to the Women's Emer-
gency Corps for lending us a room in which to work.

At the time of writing this report we have received news of the
sending of another 40 bales from the Babies' Kit Society, Sydney.
