Clubs for women who are interested in the arts, literature, science, social issues and the continuous promotion of knowledge, in a spirit of friendship and openness to the world.

“Life is a perpetual formation with open perspectives from beginning to end, without ever becoming weary. Each moment brings a new experience, which requires new appreciation and action. It is an eternal crusade that unites in joyful friendship all who participate.” 

Excerpt from Crusaders by Constance Smedley, founder of the Lyceum Club International

The French Federation of the Lyceum Club International was created in 1963. It is part of the International Association of Lyceum Clubs (IALC).
