While I agree with Estrill that the women who already are Lions qualify, I 
would forward a different collective assembly, along the lines of the 
suggestion for the whole parcel of wise-women from Bjornsborg:

the Moonschadowe "Matriarchy"

Consider this:  for many years it was the running joke / observation that a 
rather large number of Ansteorran peers were being tempered / "grown" 
through their experiences in Moonschadowe.  At the root of the causes for 
this phenomenon, it is my belief that the ladies of Moonschadowe were 
largely responsible for the effect, inspiring and leading-by-example in 
service and in enthusiasm.
