RVW events are restricted to women age 18 and older. Our organization seeks to provide opportunities for women to develop skills and friendships in that special atmosphere that is created when only women are present. In an all-woman environment, the dynamics of our interactions are different. We are responsible only for ourselves, free to pursue our own individual interests without the distractions that are present when we have children to look after or other family needs to consider.
Our goal is to maintain woman space. We therefore do not invite any men or children as guests at our national or chapter events. However, we do occasionally use male instructors, technicians or service providers. These men have excellent qualifications and display positive and helpful attitudes toward women.
