‘Devoted to women from all over the world’
The ‘Women’s International Club of Athens‘, abbreviated ‘WIC’, was founded in 1976 to foster mutual understanding and friendship among women from all over the world who live in Athens, Greece. WIC members are made up of 60 different nationalities who as such promote a constant cultural and interesting exchange through our social and educational meetings.
General Meetings – The Club holds monthly meetings where invited speakers present their expertise and knowledge in fields such as psychology, medicine, art and history, etc., with a lively discussion after the presentation. The lunch that follows gives an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones.
WIC Activities – WIC Athens organises Meetings, Events and Activities on a variety of interesting subjects. Embassies also invite the WIC Ladies for fascinating Meet-My-Country presentations, a truly unique privilege and special way to have a burst of culture through knowledge and gastronomy from around the world.
Circles – WIC Circles are a great way to deepen friendships among members and serve various interests like the ‘Book and Film Discussion Circle’, the ‘Wine Tasting Circle’, ‘Cosmic Research’, ‘French Poetry’, ‘Cooking Circles’, the ‘Play Reading Circle’ and even a ‘WIC Choir’. The ‘Conversation Circles’ include these languages: Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, Greek and English.
Activities also include visits to museums, galleries, private collections, premiers, fashion trends, the art of gastronomy and anything that is athletic, cultural or socially unique and exciting. They enjoy activities that include husbands and other loved ones. Fun events like fancy dress parties, dinner dances, food and wine nights, excursions and trips to exotic and exciting places around the globe.
BoD – The President and Executive Board are dedicated to making WIC a great club to be a member of. The current WIC President is Cris Butler and the Honorary President – a title bestowed upon the wife of a foreign accredited Ambassador to Greece – is Mrs. Kikuko Nishibayashi, wife of the Ambassador of Japan.
