Welcome to the Oxfordshire Federation

For more than 100 years the WI has been inspiring women. In Oxfordshire we have over 3700 members belonging to 120 WIs, ranging from 10 – 100 members.  WIs meet in the mornings, evenings, and afternoons.

We have a selection of workshops, events, and educational fun outings including holidays. Trips include visits to historic house, musical events, city visits, concerts, as well as a good variety of talks and entertainment. As always, we aim to accommodate all tastes.  Where space permits friends are welcome to join an event. We offer training for new and experienced members to support them in their roles.  We also campaign nationally on a wide range of issues from equal pay to climate change, mental health, and violence against women.

At a local level, many of our members just want to have fun, perhaps learn new skills, have a pleasant social evening once a month, listen to a speaker, enjoy a drink together … whether it be tea or wine, and read our monthly magazine Oxfordshire Inspires. This is where you will find details of all activities and experiences on offer.  It is all part of the WI ethos, which is to offer opportunities for enjoyable learning for life and friendship.

WIs come in all shapes and sizes with members being involved in the way that suits them. There are many WIs to choose from, each run in a slightly different way and with its own personality. If you visit one WI and find it’s not for you, do try another one in your vicinity.
