Welcome to the Jocist Women Leaders Biographical Dictionary.
This is a project to document the lives and work of women leaders of the Young Christian Workers (YCW), Young Christian Students (YCS) and other Specialised Catholic Action movements inspired by Joseph Cardijn's Young Christian Workers or Jeunesse Ouvrière Chrétienne (JOC) movement.
This biographical dictionary also forms part of a larger project, the Jocist Women's Leaders Project, which aims to document the lives and work of those women leaders in a broader fashion by promoting research and publications dealing with their lives.
