Lithuanian Catholic Women's Organization

The Lithuanian Catholic Women's Organization (Lithuanian: Lietuvių katalikių moterų draugija) was a Lithuanian women's organization. Founded in 1908, it was the largest women's organization in interwar Lithuania. It was disestablished after the Soviet occupation of Lithuania in 1940.

In 1907, the First Congress of Lithuanian Women took place in Kaunas. On the congress it was decided that a national women's organisation should be founded. However, due to the split between Catholic and liberal women, the plan could not be realised, and instead they founded separate women's organisations instead.
