Inspiring women - then and now
The WI is a unique organisation shaped by its members. In 1915, we set out to give women a voice and to be a force for good in the community. Since then, our members 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 all women of all generations, to share experiences and learn from each other. A WI membership offers the opportunity to meet women in your local area in-person and virtually, to make friends and make a difference in your community. We campaign nationally on a wide range of issues and provide life-long learning and self-development opportunities for women in England and Wales.
Since it was formed in 1915, the WI has operated as a charitable organisation and individual members have taken an active part in society. With a strong, sometimes outspoken, campaigning focus to provide women with a voice, with education and useful skills there's lot of opportunities for every women to find something they're interested in.
