What is the WomIN's Fest Retreat? This 3-day retreat for women and girls is a powerful, life-changing experience! Women-only spaces offer support and freedom to express and explore all that it means to be women. This weekend is a chance to connect with other women, enjoy the outdoors, camping (or cabins), community meals, hiking, campfires, live music, fun & powerful workshops. It's a unique & safe space to express and embrace your womanhood.
Background WomIN's Fest was conceived of in 2013, and the inaugural 3-day retreat was held in August 2016. Focusing on women's issues, we have always been inclusive of our trans and non-binary sisters, focusing on equality and feminism. Led by dedicated volunteers, this grassroots organization is driven by a mission to support, empower, and inspire women and girls for a better future.
What does "WomIN" mean? The word "womin" combines our Indiana connection (IN) with a desire to reclaim our noun (wom-IN). Living day to day in a male dominated culture can be exhausting or traumatic. This is a safe space for ALL womin to come celebrate our culture and feminism. This means that all LGBT womin and ally sisters are welcome here. Bring an open mind and make some amazing new friends!
Setting for the Retreat We are so thrilled to be able to host this life-changing retreat at the beautifully secluded, forested retreat center of Bradford Woods. Located just 45 min. SW of Indianapolis, it's so close, yet feels like another world for 3 days of joyful respite!
