About

WomenWAND has three main strands:

Social WAND:

We recognise that women like to socialise and network but for some, especially older women moving to the area, establishing new friendships can be hard.

We run social events, such as walks, talks, crafts and frock markets that all women can attend on their own, or with friends.

Take a look at our events page and join us on one soon!

WomenSerious WAND:

While we like having fun, we also recognise that life can be hard for many women through poverty, ill health or domestic violence and abuse.

We are members of local and national networks and organisations that lobby parliament and campaign for women’s rights. We also organise awareness raising events such as Reclaim the Night, as well as conferences aimed at agencies who deal with women in distress.

WomanSupportive WAND: 

Women are all different; they have a unique range of life experiences and acquire a diverse set of skills along the way.

Through our network, we draw on these skills and experiences and share them at events such as Dorset Women’s Day.

You can always seek sisterly advice from our members via our Facebook and Twitter page!
