The Manhattan Women’s Club (MWC) is a private social group in New York City.  As you might guess, it is made up primarily of women who live in the New York metropolitan area. But more important, its members are linked by their outlook (not their gender or location) and by a newly-coined but hard-to-describe trait called: “Manhattan-mindedness.” This has less to do with geography and more with the best and most common traits observed in MWC members: curiosity, intrepidness, intelligence, good-naturedness, generosity, savvy-ness, kindness, inclusiveness, worldliness – and a great sense of humor.   “Manhattan Women” live all over the world. Yes, there IS bias here because MWC members are highly capable in the many roles they pursue – which include: chefs, friends, bankers, teachers, quilters, artists, lawyers, parents, authors, doctors, musicians, agents, philanthropists, spouses, entrepreneurs, professors, caterers, accountants, designers, producers, historians, actresses and grandparents.  And probably a few Indian chiefs, too!

The MWC “clubhouse” is New York City and its immediate environs because of the infinite variety, diversity and scope New York offers in terms of extraordinary things to see and do. We sometimes travel farther afield, always with a Manhattan-minded outlook.

Most, not all,  new MWC members are referred by current members.  If you are interested in joining the Manhattan Women’s Club, the first step is to subscribe to the MWC website in the appropriate sign-up box at the top of the right-hand column on the homepage. After you have done so you will automatically get notices about new, upcoming activities as soon as they are published which will give you a chance to become familiar with the group.   For privacy and legal reasons only you, or someone with access to your email account, can subscribe or unsubscribe you from the website.

The next step in the membership process is to complete the MWC Prospective Membership Questionnaire.  This is available online by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.   After the questionnaire is received and reviewed, all applicants are contacted.

The MWC Membership Year is for the 12 months following September 15th.  Annual dues are for that period; they are not pro-rated for periods of less than a year.   All members have individual log-ins to access the MWC Members Site which is where the MWC Directory, Activity Sign-ups and meet-up specifics, the MWC Calendar, the MWC  Bulletin Board and activity-specific Discussion Boards are available.

Our members’ privacy is very important and the MWC email list is not available for sale.
