Hi Emily. As you are in the US, I’m afraid you can’t as it’s restricted to men. If you’d been in the UK (or England at least), then there are 2 Grand Lodges specifically for women - although you would not be able to visit a men’s lodge.

Dear Emily,

Just as there are sororities, Girl Guides, women-only gymnasiums and so forth, places restricted to just women, Freemasonry is restricted to men. Sorry.

There are some Masonic organizations for women only. There are also organizations of Co-Masonry. However, none of these groups are recognized by regular Masonry.

Possibly; go here..

It’s the website for one of the 2 English Grand Lodges for women. They appear to have lodges in Zimbabwe. Beyond that we can’t help. You’d need to contact them direct.
