Ladies America celebrated nearly a century of women helping women with Glamour Magazine at the 65th Annual Congressional Dinner in Washington D.C.

Hosted by the Washington Press Club Foundation, the nonprofit group was first formed in 1919 as the Women's National Press Club, to give female journalists an opportunity to collaborate with their peers and provide leverage for professional recognition in the then male-dominated field of journalism.

"The history of the Washington Press Club Foundation is such an inspiring example to women today and is a testament to the importance and power of women working together in support of each other," said Lindsey Mask, CEO and Founder of Ladies America. "It was an honor to be a guest at Glamour Magazine's table at the event and Ladies America looks forward to working with the publication, and the Washington Press Club Foundation, to continue advancing the interests of women in the workplace."
