Lioness Clubs

Women are very welcome and encouraged to become Lions.

“Lions” are full voting and participating members of our organisation and Lions Australia has active programs in place to grow women’s membership.

We absolutely encourage women to join us in our community service work and particularly in leading and guiding our organisation as full members.

If you would like to become a Lion, please visit our Join Lion page.


Historically, some women have participated as Lioness. Lioness Clubs are projects of Lions Clubs and have provided the opportunity for women to participate in community service without becoming full Lions members.

lioness logoWhilst the primary aim of Lionesses is to help others, it is not just about raising funds and providing community service. Being a Lioness member opens up new doors to a network of friends. In Australia, Lionesses participate in local, district, state and national seminars, forums and conventions. They share fellowship with a large circle of fellow members. ‘Break-away’ weekends are organised by many districts and states for fun and fellowship.

Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917, while the first Lioness Club was formed in 1975 in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina USA. The first Lioness Club in Australia commenced in 1976.

In Australia and Papua New Guinea there are about 102 Lioness Clubs with 2000 members who enjoy helping people in their community who are less fortunate than themselves. At the same time the Lioness enjoy a bond of friendship that extends not only within Australia but throughout the world.
