A page about the history of the International Council of African Women (ICAW) from the "African Women Rising" newsletter. Nkenge Touré co-founded the ICAW with Loretta Ross in 1982 to prepare a delegation of American women to attend the 1985 United Nations Conference on Women in Nairobi, Kenya. ICAW was the primary source providing information, support, and encouragement to African American women to organize delegations and attend the "herstoric" conference.
