NPC v. WPC

We’ve heard that some folks were upset after the Washington Press Club Foundation’s recent Congressional Dinner. A few were upset that, during the event that honored gender-barrier-breaking Helen Thomas, there was a continuing theme about how the Washington Press Club Foundation was started, in part, because the National Press Club didn’t admit women (the Women’s National Press Club, founded in 1919, ultimately became the Washington Press Club Foundation. The NPC admitted women starting in 1971).

Some NPC’ers were upset that it wasn’t put into context: That such discrimination was long in the past and that there have been seven female presidents of the NPC (never mind the financial support given to the WPCF by the NPC).
