Palestine Women’s Council

Note: this biography may be incomplete or out of date. Extension/update suggestions are welcome.

Palestine Women's Council, founded in 1921, was an inter-communal group in Jerusalem, presided over by British wives of high government officials - Lady Samuel was an early head. Frances Newton was a member.

One of its first acts was to secure the appointment of Margaret Nixon as government welfare officer for women and children.

Few Arab women were involved in the organization, and those listed on the rosters seem likely to have been token representatives whose participation eventually disappeared.
