We are a social group with a social purpose.
Before the BWN became the BWN, it was a small, informal gathering of expat women meeting in someone’s living room for coffee and friendly conversation. Although we’ve upsized our meeting space and our mission since then, we haven’t downsized the friendly.
Our Social Purpose - Supporting Local Charities
Every two years we select local organizations that we support through fundraising and – whenever possible – through volunteering. For May 2016 to May 2018, we are actively fundraising for Mujeres Pa’Lante and Fundació Concepció Juvanteny.

What others have said....
“I have been living in Barcelona for almost 9 years now and, I was lucky to find out about BWN through a dear friend who introduced me to the group. I wasn’t looking for new friends or ways to fill my time. I simply thought it is a lovely blend of fantastic women from all around the world and with all kinds of experiences. (more…)
“I have been a member since the day one and have been very satisfied with the plethora of activities offered here, that caters to all. Being a crafter and creator of art, I have been able to explore and learn about the ‘art scene’ that this city offers. (more…)
“I’ve only been a member a few months, but already feel completely connected to the BWN. Since I am new to Barcelona, it’s been great to meet warm and interesting women with a wealth of experience. I feel like I have benefitted by being part of the group.”
“Although I am half Catalan and have lived in this city most of my life, I do not cease to be surprised at the creativity, extent and variety of the activities which are organized by BWN bearing in mind the different needs and interests of its members. (more…)
“I joined BWN in order to make friends. I didn’t have a job, study or have children, which are the most usual ways to meet people, so I had to look for an alternative. The BWN offers a fantastic way to meet women from all over the world (more…)
“When I came to Barcelona, the person in San Francisco that told me about BWN said, “You can try it out a couple of times without paying, but just join right away, the outings themselves are worth the membership fee!” I really do think that is true. Awesome job!!!!!”
