-Among the several Finnish-linked societies in the New York area, we think about women’s issues. Whether you are a Finland-connected Finn, Scandinavian,  American or of other nationality, we welcome you.
-What can we do to connect with and help each other? How can we forward our projects, our visions, our common awareness of global politics and culture as they impact women? What can FAWN do to enrich all our lives in addition to on-going networking?
-We of the FAWN Board of Directors are actively engaged with the above ties - as well as partaking in various civilized pleasures (wine-tastings, cruising) and much more. We need your ideas too - that's why we look forward to seeing and welcoming you soon.
