The Federation of Women's Sports Associations of France was an organization under which it has united the women's sports clubs in the whole of France. The first federation dedicated to women's physical activity only, appeared in 1912. The first women's athletics championships were held in 1917. Dr. Raoul Bodet and Mrs. Marie Sorkoff headed the organization from its inception. The acronyms of the federation as of 1921 included the abbreviated name FFSF of the French Women's Sports Association, as it appears in the membership cards before us.
