You don’t have to be a man to be a Freemason!

Did you know that Freemasonry isn’t just for men? There have been female Freemasons for over 100 years!

Women Freemasons

Women Freemasons have been meeting across the country for over 100 years.

Women Freemasons have been meeting across the country for over 100 years.

There are two female-only Grand Lodges: The Order of Women Freemasons and HFAF – Freemasonry for Women. They both follow exactly the same ceremonies and wear the same regalia as male Freemasons. Similarly, both also often work closely with community and charity projects.

The United Grand Lodge of England have an excellent working relationship with both Grand Lodges. Freemasonry for Women members took part in Open House London in 2019 in order to showcase female Freemasonry, whilst both organisations take part in joint Freshers’ Fairs up and down the country as part of the Universities Scheme.

There are women’s lodges in Oxfordshire too (but not in Henle though), so just drop us a line if you’re interested and we can point you in the right direction. Or just go direct with the following links:
