    Hello Brothers and Masters,

    I write from Ghana, a female young woman who have interest in joining the fraternity. I would like to know if women are allowed to join. Also, could anyone humbly assist me with locations of lodges in my country please?

    Thank you.

    There are versions of Freemasonry that are open to females. Male-craft Freemasonry is not open to female membership.

    Indeed. I have no idea if Co-Freemasonry or Le Droit Humain or others like Aramanth or Easter Star are in your country.

    According to Wikipedia Le Droit is not in Ghana

    The nearest organization of female-only Masonry would seem to be mainland Europe, though flights to New York City might be no harder. Not close.

    Because our orders are male only we don't keep close track of female-only or mixed-gender jurisdictions. They are tiny.

    Relative to Ghana the nearest lodges that take women, in raw distance, is mainland Europe.

    Relative to Ghana the nearest lodges that take women, in number of airplane hops, is a list of large cities with major hub airports (and very tiny lodges) that include mainland Europe, UK, a couple of the largest US cities.

    As we don't keep close track of jurisdictions that take women, I leave that as an exercise to any woman who comes to this forum. Google is their friend.

    Do you know you’re bumping years old posts?

    I don't know if he is doing it deliberately or not but I have revived old posts when it was a topic that interested me. I believe that you even commented on it once years ago Brother Glen, lol.
