Can women become Freemasons?

by Krastine Kirchoff
(Nashville, AR)

I am a woman who want to become a Freemason. I've researched long and hard to see if women can become Freemasons. Where I am, (Nashville, AR) the closest Lodge is Pleasant Valley Lodge in Nashville. Can anyone help me find out if women can go there and become a mason? Maybe even call them and find out?

I am sorry, but in the same way that sororeties, women's gyms and female professional associations are limited to women only, traditional, regular Freemasonry is a fraternity, a group for men only. There are groups which dub themselves Masonic and which admit women, but they are not recognized as real by mainstream Masons.

Of course they can - the comment by a male freemason are typical of the bias they hls against women

By your logic, Anonymous, any woman who enrolls her daughter in Girl Guides, who goes to a female-only gym, who joins a sorority or who has a regular Girls' Night Out with her female friends is somehow 'biased' against men.

How very foolish.

Freemasonry is a men's organization. It is possible to find women who claim to be Masons, but they are not regular and not recognized by mainstream Masonry.
