Jaycees members to form a group including women

Members of six chapters of the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce who oppose its ban on membership for women are sponsoring a new national organization, the New York Times reports. The new group will be called the United Junior Citizens Organization of America and will allow full membership for women.

Representatives from New York; Philadelphia; Rochester, N.Y.; Omaha, Neb.; Pittsburgh; and Columbia, Md., decided to form the new organization, and plan a constitutional convention Aug. 28 and 29. Organizers say the dispute over women in the Jaycees arose because of differences between urban and rural chapters, including the fact that more women have careers outside the home in cities than in rural are as.
