Rochester

Overview

The Legal Aid Society of Rochester, N.Y. traces its origins to the formation of the Rochester's Woman's Educational and Industrial Union (W.E.I.U.) in 1893. The W.E.I.U., founded in part by Susan B. Anthony and Dr. Sarah Dolley, was established to bring together diverse women's groups in Rochester. The W.E.I.U.'s purpose was to provide a strong unified force, working to eradicate the many problems facing women of the era. To facilitate their goals, the W.E.I.U. formed committees, including a Legal Protection Committee dedicated to "command the social and legal rights of women to public attention...assist in all measures which may be taken to secure the (legal) rights of any who may apply..." The Legal Protection Committee evolved into the Legal Aid Society of Rochester.
