About Us

The Women's International Club of Paris ("Le WIC de Paris") is part of the global Open Door Network, a network of International Women's Associations.

Le WIC de Paris was formed in early 1996 to enable women of different nationalities living in and around Paris to share their cultures in a friendly environment. It is open to women of all nationalities who have lived in an international environment and who are willing to participate in the life of the Club.

It is the aim of Le WIC de Paris to offer a wide array of activities and functions for members by members.

Our membership is composed of approximately 250 members of 52 different nationalities, and a balance is kept to ensure that a truly international atmosphere is maintained within the Club.

All functions are conducted in English, especially conferences, coffees or visits, even gatherings with partners, movies and theater plays that members attend. Fluency in English is a pre-requisite. 

The Club has a monthly meeting 9 months of the year (excluding July and August) with a guest speaker. In addition, we have an annual Christmas lunch (in December) organized for our members.  The Club also has a monthly coffee morning, normally at a member's home.

Each member receives a monthly e-letter and a yearly Le WIC de Paris Membership Directory.

The annual membership fee is 55 Euros. The club Membership year runs from 1st October to 30th September each year.

Le WIC de Paris is a private club whose members are co-opted. It is a non-profit making organization, membership may not be used for commercial purposes. It has no political or religious involvement.  To this effect any commercial contact will be disregarded.
