Type: Badges/ Pins

Badge for the 1968 Triennial Conference of the Associated Country Women of the World.

ACWW is the world-wide federation of Women’s Institute and Countrywomen’s organisations. It is the largest international organisation for rural women, representing members in over 70 nations. (More information on its website.) The National Federation of Women’s Institutes for England and Wales, the Scottish Rural Women’s Institutes, and the two Irish national federations are all participants in this great world-wide sisterhood.

It is very rare for ACWW badges (apart from the green members’ badge) to come on the collectors’ market. It is also not very easy to find out much about them!

This badge would only have been available to those attending the 1968 conference, which I believe was held in South America. The red, white and black enamels on a white metal base, are all in absolutely excellent condition.

The back has a horizontal hinged pin and safety catch fastening in working order. Otherwise it is blank, with no maker’s name.

Diameter: 1.25" (32mm).
