IMG_7304And so we come to the end of another year, our fifth, and what a year it was. They all are, of course. It’s such a joy to spend time each year with friends, with women we respect, admire, and love (and, yes, the occasional carefully selected man — we love you, too!). What a privilege it is to live in a city that, whatever its flaws, acknowledges that its female citizens have the same rights its male citizens do. And what a simple, sensual pleasure it is to feel the summer sun on our skin — all our skin.

Below you’ll see a selection of the photos we took at our events this past year that you clicked on the most. We’ve divided them into public and private — first our forays into the wider world of New York’s parks and plazas, and then our visits to private rooftops, pools and such. We hope they bring back memories for you that are at least a fraction as wonderful as the memories they conjure for us. And we hope you’ll join us again in the new year, as our adventures continue. (You can always reach us by email at, and if you’re an open-minded, book-loving, adventurous — or adventure-curious — woman, we hope you will.)

Remember: be brave, be bold, be free. It’s your right.

And have a very happy, healthy new year.
