Who We Are

Since its founding in 1901 by social activist Mary Harriman, The Junior League has evolved into one of the oldest, largest, and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, encompassing more than 150,000 women in 292 Leagues in four countries.

Martha Rivers Ingram epitomizes the versatility of leadership. A long-time member of The Junior League of Nashville and a board member of a host of institutions including the Nashville Opera, the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, the Nashville Ballet and Vanderbilt University, Ingram assumed the role of chairman and CEO at her husband’s company when he unexpectedly passed away.

What We Do

For more than a century, The Junior League has been on the forefront of social reform, identifying problems—pollution, illiteracy, domestic violence, foster children without a safety net—and finding solutions.

Imparting girls with self-esteem and education is the objective of The Junior League of Austin’s Con Mi MADRE initiative, which has drawn the participation of more than 2,000 mother-daughter teams since 1992 and sent 75 percent of graduating seniors to two- or four-year colleges—or to join a branch of the military.
