The organization was founded in 1973 by Councilman David Cunningham and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, along with other women political trailblazers in the city of Los Angeles. The members of the WSC are dedicated women, who have been at the forefront as advocates for family, youth, children and seniors to resolve economic, educational, health and safety issues in the Los Angeles community.
