As we celebrate International Women’s Day, Freemasonry for Women is proud to play its part in the empowerment of women both here in the UK and in our overseas lodges. For more than one hundred years women have stood firm in their belief that they were justly entitled to become Freemasons and to be recognised as such. In today’s increasingly busy world many women feel isolated and alone in a society which is still dominated by men. They appreciate the different environment of an all female group.
Freemasonry provides women with support networks, and friendships which span the divisions of race, class or age whilst offering spiritual and personaldevelopment. Our teachings direct us to help those in need and our members are encouraged to raise funds for charity and our members in India have put these principles into practice by actively supporting leprosy communities and schools in their area.
Freemasonry offers women friendship, inspiration and empowerment.
