The membership and participation of women and girls in the Young Men's Christian Association was stressed almost from the beginnings of the YMCA in the United States. Women's and girl's programing initially grew out of local community needs rather than out of any centralized YMCA initiative; The YMCA's young men wanted a female presence at their social gatherings, so YMCA-based debating societies, outdoor clubs, dramatic and music groups frequently included women. Being self governing from the beginning made it possible for local associations to move more quickly than the national movement in providing services and membership for women and girls. It wasn't until much later, however, that women were permitted to take on leadership roles in the organization.
