THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER OF FREEMASONRY FOR MEN AND WOMEN, LE DROIT HUMAIN
The International Order of Freemasonry for Men and Women, Le Droit Humain, is a fraternal brotherhood that has many Federations and Jurisdictions worldwide. In contrast to other Masonic obediences, it is a global Order.
The Order has its headquarters in Paris. Every country works the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite, from the 1st to the 33rd degree inclusive.
The Order is administered by the Supreme Council, although, within the International Constitution, Federations have the freedom of self-governance. It is recognised by other Orders in many countries throughout the world, which maintain the same principles. There are some Masonic bodies that admit men only and do not recognise any Orders of Freemasonry that admit women.
The government of the British Federation is vested in the Representative of the Supreme Council, known as the Most Puissant Grand Commander, who holds the 33rd and highest degree of the Order.
