dedicated to growing the number of women who participate in shooting sports by empowering them with confidence
with a mission to grow the number of women who participate in shooting sports by empowering them with confidence. The first five years focused on archery. The concept was if women could try to shoot a bow, they would love the feeling they get from shooting and join the sport. They developed a process called Test Shots™, and in five years Shoot Like A Girl put bows in the the hands of nearly 3,500 women and grew the number of women archers!

Born out of a desire to capture the energy and up-to-the-moment tactic of using the electronic age, the WON delivers the latest news about women in the outdoors, events, gear, tips and Barbara Baird’s weekly blog, “Babbs in the Woods.”

has been an all-volunteer, grassroots organization that conducts high-powered meetings around kitchen tables all across the U.S. to plot ways to fight gun control. WAGC has been a presence on the internet for nearly 20 years to blow holes in the myth that all women support gun control. There are now many pro-gun women’s’ organizations that have formed to fight against gun control to protect their families and to protect the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. We consider these groups to be our “Sisters in Arms.”
one of the oldest female gun rights organizations in the world.
Nineteen years ago I was in a serious car crash. A thin white divider sheet separated the hospital room that I was sharing with a man who had been intentionally shot in the neck with a 9mm handgun. We both survived
WAGC would also like to thank some very fine gentlemen. We believe America’s “Founding Fathers” were the first feminists. The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights doesn’t say “the right of MEN to keep and bear Arms.” It says “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” That’s why WAGC believes “The Second Amendment IS the Equal Rights Amendment.” Guns are often referred to as the great equalizer when a woman is protecting herself and her family.
