YWCA is a global movement.

We found a home here in Wausau in 1920 when a group of women came together to create a space for women to meet, socialize, and get to work.  Since our first meeting we have been dedicated to improving the lives of women, children and families in Marathon County. The first activities included calisthenics, clubs for young business girls, household employees, vocational school students and normal school students. The YW also started the first program for industrial workers.
