History
The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls was founded in 1922, by William Mark Sexson, a Christian minister and active member of the Masonic Lodge. The Rev. Sexson spent his life dedicated to both fraternal organizations, and his ministry. He saw the need for an organization for young women who were from a Masonic background. Today, membership is open to any girl regardless of Masonic affiliation. Rainbow helps prepare today's young women to be tomorrow's leaders. Former Rainbow girls include Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Conner; astronaut Dorothy "Dottie" Metcalf-Lindenburger; actresses Lee Merriwether, Ruth Buzzi, and Dawn Wells; Bobbie Shunk Gaunt, first woman president and CEO of Ford Motor Co. of Canada; State Senator Carol Hudkins; and US Senator Olympia J. Snowe, just to name a few.
