In the 19th century, Women's Exchanges formed a national network that created economic alternatives for financially vulnerable women in a world that permitted limited employment options.

Women's Exchanges are one of the nation's oldest continuously operating voluntary movements.  Many are still in business after more than a century.

The Women's Exchange took root in Michigan in Detroit during the 1880's.
