How the magic began
About WIC Delhi, it was inaugurated in 1970 through the earnest efforts of 12 founder members from the Indian as well as international communities.
From its inception, WIC Delhi, as it is fondly called, was dedicated to promoting cultural and social interaction among the international and Indian women residing in Delhi and its immediate surroundings.
From its earliest years, Women’s International Club provided its members with programmers rich in glimpses of the culture, cuisines and art forms of various parts of India as well as, most importantly, of the countries from which our many international members have hailed.
Indeed, it has been a tradition for WIC Delhi’s international members to regale us with musical performances from Indonesia, tea ceremonies from Japan, cultural presentations from China, classical music concerts from Germany, traditional Christmas celebrations from the British Isles and colourful dances from South America.
Every year Women’s International Club features panel discussions on current topics. The contributions of notable figures in public and government life, authors, doctors, artists, historians, lawyers among others have enriched these sessions and sparked lively debate.
Before the pandemic, the Women’s International Club organised two trips every year – one to a renowned historical city in India and one international visit. These trips are popular with everyone, as they highlight the historic and cultural aspect of the place visited, while also forging bonds of friendship between members. As the WIC Delhi matured, its institutions were firmly established to include a Constitution, Membership Directory and a regular roster of Circle Meetings on topics of interest.
The monthly General Meetings bring the members together and it is at these that the social aspect of WIC Delhi blossoms.
Members are treated to regional and international delicacies and the warmth of friendship. Indeed many lifelong friendships are formed in the Women’s International Club.
Women’s International Club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020 and marks its ability to evolve by opening this webpage. A dynamic, affable, intellectually acute membership looks forward to the next 50 years and welcomes new members each year.
