About the WI – Women Supporting Women

Womens inst logo

The organisation is based on the ideals of fellowship, truth, tolerance and justice.

The main purposes of the Women’s Institute organisation are to enable women who are interested in issues associated with modern life, including arts, crafts and sciences, to improve and develop conditions of their lives, to advance their education in citizenship, in public questions both national and international, in music, drama and other cultural subjects and in all branches of agriculture, handicrafts, home economics, health and social welfare.

Anyone who identifies as a woman may join, no matter what their views on religion or politics may be. The organisation is non-sectarian and non-party political. This does not prevent Women’s Institutes from concerning themselves with matters of political and religious significance.
