We are Hampshire County Federation of Women’s Institutes (HCFWI) comprising 200 local branches of the Women’s Institute. Each one meets at least once a month.

The WI is a democratic, social and educational charity. Every WI provides monthly speakers/demonstrators on a variety of topics decided by members. Other meetings, crafts, walking, discussion or drama groups, choirs etc, are decided by members of individual WIs. The subscription is deliberately modest in order to ensure that all women who wish to join may do so. Events are organised throughout Hampshire and include crafts, arts, sports, leisure, drama, public and international affairs, leadership and much more.
