New York startup The Wing, which offers co-working spaces and social clubs especially for women, has secured $75 million in its latest funding round led by Sequoia Capital.

The round was also backed by Airbnb and Upfront Ventures, according to a report from TechCrunch.

The female-laden spaces that take inspiration from women’s club movements of the 19th and 20th centuries are currently available in New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco.

“This investment will enable us to further The Wing’s mission and scale to new heights both offline and online,” founder Audrey Gelman, said in a statement made available by TechCrunch. “The Wing’s mission is the advancement of women through community, and we could not be more excited to partner with such a powerful community of women who lead their fields in tech, Hollywood, policy, and sports. This round is proof positive that women can be on both sides of the table.”

The Wing has raised more than $117 million to date, per TechCrunch, which notes that its last funding round saw more than $30 million in investment headed its way.

The startup already boasts 6,000 members and will be opening new spots next year in West Hollywood, Chicago, Boston, London, Toronto and Paris.
