Why Women At Woodstock: Founder Ann Voorhees Baker
Come as you are... Be who you want to be.
Like-minded women from all over the United States come to find the group of friends they've always longed for; smart, supportive, open-minded, kind, reaching for all that life has to offer, determined to pursue their dreams.
Most of all, these women believe in themselves, and they are are ready to believe in you.
They come for a variety of reasons, but common to all is a desire for community, an openness to learn from one another, and a longing for real connections that will endure and provide inspiration and support long after our time together in the woods in Woodstock.
