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 have 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.

Serious 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 have also organised awareness-raising events such as Reclaim the Night, as well as conferences aimed at agencies who deal with women in distress.

Supportive WAND


Women are all different; we have a unique range of life experiences and acquire diverse sets 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!
