The mission of the Women’s Working Group is to work with IAF to assist women falconers around the world, through education, promotion, networking and mentoring as they seek to practice the sport of falconry as a hunting tradition. To document and preserve the general history of our art as well as women’s role within it. Many women have contributed to the history, methodology and community of Falconry worldwide. IAF’s board and advisory committee includes women falconers and there are women falconers serving as national delegates on the IAF Council of Delegates.
