Le WIC de Paris is part of the global  OPEN DOOR NETWORK



“Open Door” is a network of International Women’s Associations which are non-political, non-religious, non-commercial and where membership is open to all nationalities to offer inter-club contact and communication.

Today more and more women are on the move with husbands whose professions are taking them to foreign countries or moving on their own account, pursuing careers abroad or simply enjoying a life in a newly adopted country. In many cases they are faced with a foreign language to learn and adopting to a new culture.

The immediate contact with women in similar situations provided through International Women’s Clubs “opening their doors to each other” makes these changing times more enjoyable with Monthly Meetings, a variety of activities and the forming of new friendships which can be an exciting and stimulating experience, and for these reasons this inter-club network is greatly valued.

Today there are more than sixty-five International Women’s Associations in thirty-three countries which “open their doors to each other”.

Le WIC de Paris is part of this “Open Door” network which provides a direct contact between members from affiliated associations moving to or visiting a town or city where a “Sister Club” exists and giving priority of membership to an Open Door member wanting to join a club if there is a waiting list.

If you plan to leave Paris or if you are just traveling out of France and would like to find another club like Le WIC de Paris, please contact our Open Door Coordinator – Catherine Stephenson, and she will be more than happy to help you with this matter.
