I HAD the pleasure of voting in the Special World Conference on April 20 on behalf of SFWI on the resolution to re-schedule the Triennial World Conference to May 2023 from May 2022. I was one of the 98.6% who voted in favour.

Afrodita Roman, Europe Area President, requests feedback from ACWW supporters as to how we are coping in the strange times of Covid-19. She has missed visiting the ACWW societies, so is seeking knowledge of our resilience as we emerge from lockdown.

If you visit and click on Membership you can follow the link to the latest edition of The Countrywoman, where you will find the complete list of new projects.

It is difficult to fund raise at present but you can donate direct to ACWW via their website. You can also become an individual member of ACWW for £27 and receive regular updates on their work as well as receiving copies of The Countrywoman which comes out twice a year in print and twice online.

If you missed Women Walk the World, which returned to ACWW Day on April 29, you might like to host a walk on another day for members who support ACWW. This year it is so important to focus on friendship. All our advocacy, project funding and networking is on that foundation of friendship and collaboration, so think of all the other women who have walked. If your WI has a strong ACWW supportive section or it would like to develop one, please contact me on

Jill Mulryan, ACWW Representative
