Welcome! The International Women's Association of Pittsburgh is for women of all ages, from all nations. The organization helps international women to settle in and discover Pittsburgh. At the same time, it gives women a chance to meet new people and learn about other cultures. We meet most Thursday mornings from September through May.

We will carpool, so there will be some additional cost
for gas, which will be determined and announced soon.
Important: There are stairs and sloped floors to walk down as
well as walk up, so the tour can be strenuous for some.It is
recommended that anyone who would be challenged by a walk up five flights of
steps not take this tour.
ðThe presence of steps and the natural sandy floor of
the cave make the use of strollers
and wheel chairs impossible.
ðWear appropriate shoes. No high heels.
ðThe cave temperature is 52 degrees F year around, so a sweater or
jacket should be worn.
