Adelaide Hunter Hoodless (1857-1910) Considered the founder of the Women's Institutes that spread across Canada and the world, Adelaide was a prominent figure in local and national women's organizations. Her grief over the death of her infant son from contaminated milk led her to campaign for the improvement of women's education through the teaching of domestic science. Hoodless opened her own private school, the Ontario Normal School of Domestic Science and Art in Hamilton.

A great article in the Guardian 'Safe Sex and Jam - the WI at 100'. It is amazing to read what the Women's Institute has campaigned for in its 100 years. Some like Aids and domestic abuse well before others did.
