Join Now!

Island Women (IW) is a non-profit community action organization open to all women interested in improving the amenities that Pleasure Island has to offer.  As a diverse group of local women with many talents and resources, our objective is to enhance the quality of life on Pleasure Island for residents and guests.


In 2014 a group of local women business owners and retail employees met to brainstorms ways to help revitalization efforts on Pleasure Island. Today, our membership is over 200 women strong and we have expanded our focus to include efforts to make Pleasure Island a more environmentally friendly community.  (See “About Us” and “Community Outreach” on the IW home page for more information about IW and our projects)
