About us

Inspiring women - then and now

In 1915 we set out to give women a voice and to be a force for good in the community. Since then, our membership and our ambitions alike have grown tremendously. Today , we are the largest women's organisation in the UK and we pride ourselves on being a trusted place for women of all generations to share experiences and learn from each other.
