About Single Working Women’s Day

SWWAN, Single Working Women’s Affiliate Network. Enhancing the single life makes the world a better place for everyone.

SWWAN, the Single Working Women’s Affiliate Network, started out as a way to help single women around the world learn to celebrate their courage and creativity. Chase’s Calendar of Events has established two international holidays – Single Working Women’s Day (August 4 each year) and Single Working Women’s Week (the full week containing August 4).

Barbara Payne, then a single working woman for more than 25 years, founded SWWAN in 2006 after three single friends, drinking champagne and eating strawberries on Easter Sunday morning, got to wondering why it is there are dozens of holidays for moms, dads, married people (anniversaries), lovers, etc. but nothing anywhere to recognize the unique contributions of single women to the world.

Thus was SWWAN born, and the day and week dedicated to celebrating single working women who do it all. Not only do they bring home the bacon, but they also cook and serve and clean it up. Hurray for ever-single women, for divorced singles, for single moms and for every woman who does it all.
