The Women's Labour League was founded in 1906 as a broadly based feminist group with representation from the Labour Party, trade unions, and socialist and cooperative societies.

In 1918, the Women's Labour League disappeared as a separate organization and became an integrated part of the Labour Party, as the Labour Party's Women's Organisation. It continued under this name until 1977, when separate proceedings for the Women's Organisation were taken over by the Labour Party.
