WFencing Allies Committee

The Allies Committee is tasked with educating, recruiting, and coordinating allies in support of WFencing. 


Perhaps you’re a bit confused about what being an ally even means. Our blog will help you learn more about allyship. Allies Committee co-chair Liz Mayerich has written a wonderful blog post that addresses what allyship is (link here). But in short, an ally is someone who is outside of a group, but who acts in the interests of people in that group. A prime example is men being allies to women within fencing by supporting women in leadership roles.



We would love to welcome you both as an ally and as a member of WFencing. Join us!


Membership in WFencing is open to all (regardless of gender) ages 18+.
