FEM GALORE — THE LONG-AWAITED
WOMEN’S CLUB IN MONACO
WITH A UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE
FEM GALORE — ДОЛГОЖДАННЫЙ ЖЕНСКИЙ КЛУБ В МОНАКО С УНИКАЛЬНОЙ АТМОСФЕРОЙ
FEM GALORE IS EXACTLY THE COMMUNITY THE RESIDENTS
OF MONACO, OR RATHER THEIR FEMALE HALF, WERE
LONGING FOR. THIS CLUB, CREATED BY YANA AINTABI, HAS
EVERY CHANCE TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR
PLACES FOR SUCCESSFUL, BEAUTIFUL AND HAPPY WOMEN
OF THE PRINCIPALITY.
QUALITY IS ONE OF THE REASONS TO JOIN THE CLUB. THE
IDEA OF IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE (BY FRIENDLY
ADVICE OR ATTENDING WORKSHOPS) RUNS THROUGH THE
ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE CREATION OF FEM GALORE.
HelloMonaco: Yana, what does Fem Galore mean to you?
Yana Aintabi: This is a community of women, a sisterhood network
with all its associated pleasant things, like mutual support, tender-
ness, passion, understanding, and the ability to share experiences.
I love to be surrounded by women. A women’s community is a com-
plex entity which is always in motion, with its thrills and genuine expe-
riences. It is in a female environment that I attain true understanding.
HM: How did you come up with the idea of creating a club?
YA: There is a kind of balance in relationships with men, when it is
more or less clear what to do: we hug them and support in times of
doubt. And then, they go away and spend time on work or hobbies.
But what happens with women? Meanwhile, behind our wonderful,
successful husbands (and there are many of them in my environ-
ment) we lose ourselves, we give up our career or dedicate ourselves
to our families. As a result, apart from disappointment and deceived
expectations, we also get annoyed, even angry, with ourselves. Chil-
dren grow up and build their lives. Husbands are often attracted by
someone younger and more interesting.
Who likes to have a grouchy wife, bored and lost in the emptiness
of her life?
Is this picture familiar to you?
HM: Yes, many of us probably found themselves in such a situ-
YA: There is a turning point when you realize that you can only
blame yourself. Of course, I don’t speak about those situations when

tragedies occur in life beyond our control. However, our inner world
depends only on us. But what to do when this profound realization
comes? In which direction do we move? What? How? Where? I assume
that this confusion is familiar to many of us. I created Fem Galore as
an answer to these questions.
At some point, each of us needs advice, wisdom, and the experience
of female friends. We can learn so much from each other! In addition,
every woman knows that any business becomes much more exciting
if you do it with your friends.
HM: How many members does your club count within it?
YA: Today, the Fem Galore community has about 30 permanent
members. Despite the fact that the first meetings took place in Lon-
don, after moving to Monaco I did not lose the old connections, but
also acquired new ones.
HM: What do you offer to the members of the club?
YA: For club members, I organize workshops and seminars, where
we try to deal with the reasons for our fears, to learn how not to sup-
press negative feelings, to learn to let them out and work on them.
Working on ourselves, we begin to live more consciously and more
calmly, and we switch to a more healthy lifestyle.
HM: How has your life changed since the creation of the club?
YA: I have changed, because responsibility is what distinguishes
an amateur from a professional, and my duties keep my morale up.
Looking back, I would never trade the need that I now feel in people
