HELEN GORDON DAVIS, GLORIA STEINEM, SHEILA JOHNSON, AND JOY MANGANO

Our founder was an iconic champion for women and civil rights. The late Helen Gordon Davis was the first woman from Hillsborough County elected to the Florida House of Representatives; she opened doors for women and minorities, confronting inequalities with poise and determination. Mrs. Davis, a fearless legislator, was revered by many in the Tampa Bay area. In 1952, she was the first white woman in Florida to join the NAACP at a time of civil unrest in the South.  She established the Centre for Women as “The Women’s Survival Centre” to help women become financially independent.  Her vision and foresight has made it possible for The Centre for Women to help more than 80,000 individuals to lead more successful and fulfilling lives.
