They became an affiliate member of the World Woman's Christian Temperance Union in 1885, and in 1893 a schism split the group into the Women's Total Abstinence Union and the National British Women's Temperance Association who campaigned also for suffrage. in 2004 the organization changed its name to the White Ribbon Association and today it offers free resources focusing on health education relating to alcohol, drugs and gambling.
