WHO WE ARE
The Commonwealth Countries League (CCL)
CCL is a voluntary pan-Commonwealth civil society organisation.
OUR VISION & MISSION
We work across the Commonwealth to promote equality and opportunity for girls and young women. Inspired by the suffrage movement and its fight for women’s right to vote, we’ve been active for almost 100 years in securing equal opportunities for women, promoting mutual understanding to create a fairer world.
The CCL is a non-party voluntary pan-Commonwealth civil society organisation (founded in 1925 by Alice Hemming) which grew from the British Commonwealth League (founded in 1923). The CCL was heavily influenced by the suffrage movement to fight for women’s equality and right to vote.
CCL promotes the education of girls and young women and links together women’s organisations throughout the Commonwealth. In particular it raises money for its associated charity, the Commonwealth Girls Education Fund (CGEF).
CCL’s objectives are to secure equality of liberties, status and opportunities between men and women and to promote mutual understanding throughout the Commonwealth.
