WI shop in Stroud, Gloucestershire

Living: The Women's Institute, established in 1915, to
encourage women to contribute to society during the war.
"The WI allows no nonsense like letting men in.
It is the female reply to White's, and other London clubs
which stand firm against admitting women members.
But I hear there is a move to get away from the
"Jam and Jerusalem" image. If so they are making a
great mistake. The home-made stand at any
money-raising event is cleared out in a few minutes.
It is what people love, so why should the WI wish to get
away from that at which they excel? Jam is the thing."
