You might be surprised to know that behind many great Shriners stands a great lady. Although Shriners International is most commonly known as a men’s organization, ladies’ Shrine-affiliated groups have existed since the early 1900s. Like their male counterparts, these ladies are dedicated to helping those in need and having fun.
Women who are related to a Shriner either by birth, marriage or adoption are eligible to join The Ladies’ Oriental Shrine of North America (LOSNA) and Daughters of the Nile. The Shrine Guilds of America members are wives or widows of Shriners.
