But the past few years, I've seen many women initiated. A couple of weeks ago, someone contacted me out of the blue on Facebook - nobody I know. I contacted the regional officers for that area who are now picking up the ball. One of them told me she had worked with a woman who sat across from her on the bus one day!
I'm glad we now have a path to membership that's much easier to take!
I recently went and looked at the DG path to AI. It most certainly has changed since I was initiated (and when, for some reason, I looked at what we then called "patroness" closely.)

I think many organizations have modified their AI. It's nice to know that the right women can be invited without arbitrary rules, but that the process is selective. Wishing best of luck to you and your nominee, AIHelper!
