The NZWCTU started in 1885, following the American movement that began in the United States in late 1873 and 1874. Alcohol was seen to be the cause of a number of social problems, such as poverty and violence, which impacted particularly on women. By 1883 the World's Woman's Christian Temperance Union had been established, and as part of their missionary work, American WCTU member Mary Leavitt (1830-1912) visited New Zealand in 1885.
