Documents concerning the National Employed Women's Coordinating Assembly, Business and Professional Assembly, and Industrial Assembly at the Nineteenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. Implemented at the previous convention, the National Employed Women's Coordinating Assembly unites all employed women under common cause and emphases. The Industrial Assembly and Business and Professional Assembly continue to meet independently to discuss matters unique to their groups. For 1952 the united program concerns peace, justice, and freedom. The employed women have a national and international focus on human rights and peace including fair labor practices, international cooperation via the "kits and kitties for Korea" project, and freedom and democracy. The Business and Professional Assembly meetings concerns the changing role of the white collar female worker, the cost and standard of living, and personal development. At the Industrial Assembly meetings, labor unions and the labor movement is discussed in addition to reports on their projects and programs. All assemblies discuss the structure and relationship between the three assemblies, as well as cooperation with other parts of the YWCA of the U.S.A. and outside organizations.
