The Women's Visionary Council is a 501C3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the work of visionary artists, healers, activists and researchers. We hold regular gatherings in the U.S. and Canada focusing on the work of the pioneering women and people of all genders in our community. People of all genders are welcome. The WVC was founded in 2007 by Annie Oak, a journalist who was surprised by how few women were asked to speak at conferences were psychedelics and altered states were discussed. Over the past seven years, the WVC has lobbied for the inclusion of more women in these discussions and the number of women at these gatherings has risen sharply.
