Our History

Metropolitan BPW was founded in 1964 by Ruth Moss Easterling, one of the first women to serve in North Carolina’s state House of Representatives. Recognizing the need for a meeting time that was respectful of the demands on professional women’s time, she created the first luncheon meeting of BPW in the country. As of July 2018 the group is no longer meeting or taking on members as we are in the process of dissolving.  We encourage you to seek out other sister chapters of BPW in the Charlotte area:
