AAWE Celebrates 60 Years of Paving the Way for Women in Paris! | INSPIRELLE

Many thanks to AAWE member Pauline Lemasson for her informative and inspiring INSPIRELLE article, "AAWE Celebrates 60 Years of Paving the Way for Women in Paris!"

Our beloved AAWE is turning 60 years young this year! We have a lot to celebrate, and look forward to sharing it with you!

AAWE means so much to so many people: an extended family, a cultural home, a source of friendship and support, an avenue for community service, and, of course, a group of dynamic women that know how to have fun!
To learn more about how you can be a part of our thriving, diverse, multigenerational community visit us at www.aaweparis.org.

AAWE took on bureaucracy and fought for voting rights to help expats settle into their lives in France. Today, the group is 60 years strong.
