Bordeaux Women’s Club

E-mail: contact@bordeauxwomensclub.org
The Bordeaux Women’s Club (BWC) was created at the end of World War II by American military wives living in France. In 1984, the BWC became an official non-profit association, and today is a very diverse American-led group. Geared to the international English-speaking community of Bordeaux, the identifying aspect of the BWC membership is its composition of similarly situated women who have experienced direct cross-cultural transition. By being able to provide a natural atmosphere of open receptivity, the BWC’s mission statement is to help ease the challenges and difficulties associated with new, or renewed, cultural transitions while integrating into French – and Bordeaux – life and culture. Striving to fill the void for those with no other recourse, it is through a wide variety of shared social and cultural activities, that the BWC is an active connection point for the culturally mobile. The BWC is a very dynamic, rapidly expanding group. Alongside the very popular Monthly Luncheon, there is a wide range of numerous activities throughout the season and an informative Monthly Newsletter.

France-USA Lyon
France-USA has many members, individuals as well as families, who sincerely enjoy maintaining contact with Americans, either because they have lived or studied or worked in the United States or because they simply appreciate the rich diversity and openness of American people. We organize special events from time to time, such as the recent dinner in honor of the New York City firemen who visited Lyon in March 2002 and the election night discussions and debates of November 2000. We also organize regular activities, such as French-American dinners in local restaurants and we keep you informed about cultural events, and we organize monthly French-English conversation groups. Every year we plan our annual Thanksgiving dinner in November and a Super Bowl party in January.
