1994; This interview deals with Jean Arnot's involvement with the National Council of Women in Australia. She became interested in the Council when she was a member of the Koorora Club which had started as an auxiliary for St Luke's Hospital, Sydney, and ran for 40 years. She was most influenced by Ruby Board and was persuaded to stand for the presidency in 1960. When the Council was 75 years old Jean Arnot wrote its history with the help of Doris Mitchell. The contact with Councils in other states was of great interest to her. Jean Arnot was also president of the Business and Professional Women's Club and although she was a member of the Library Association, this gave her further opportunity to connect with other professional women.
