The Association of American Women in Europe, known by its acronym AAWE, was founded in 1961 as the Association of American Wives of Europeans. Our Story

We are a vibrant, multi-generational association of mostly American women, living permanently in France, who enjoy our bicultural lives. For nearly sixty years, AAWE has provided a warm welcome and a cultural home for American women in France.

Regular Members are women who hold American citizenship and live in France on a long-term basis. Associate Members are other women and men who identify with AAWE’s mission.

AAWE is a non-profit volunteer association, and is a member of FAWCO, the Federation of American Women's clubs Overseas.
