Women's Institutes
The Women's Institute (WI) is a community-based organisation for women in the United Kingdom, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand. The movement was founded in Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada, by Erland and Janet Lee with Adelaide Hoodless being the first speaker in 1897. It was based on the British concept of Women's Guilds, created by Rev Archibald Charteris in 1887 and originally confined to the Church of Scotland.[1] From Canada the organisation spread back to the motherland, throughout the British Empire and Commonwealth, and thence to other countries. Many WIs belong to the Associated Country Women of the World organization. The WI movement began at Stoney Creek, Ontario in Canada in 1897 when Adelaide Hoodless addressed a meeting for the wives of members of the Farmers' Institute. WIs quickly spread throughout Ontario and Canada, with 130 branches launched by 1905 in Ontario alone, and the groups flourish in their home province today

Wi (kana)
in
hiragana, or in katakana, is a nearly obsolete Japanese kana, each of which represent one mora. It is presumed that ゐ represented [ɰi] (listen) and that ゐ and い indicated different pronunciations until somewhere between the Kamakura period and the Taishō period when they both came to be pronounced [i]. Along with the kana for we (ゑ in hiragana, ヱ in katakana), this kana was deemed obsolete in Japanese in 1946, and replaced with い and イ. It is now rare in everyday usage; in onomatopoeia and foreign words, the katakana form ウィ (U-[small-i]) is preferred. The kana still sees some modern-day usage. The spelling of whisky is usually "ウイスキー" (uisukī), but sometimes written "ウヰスキー" (uwisukī) stylistically, such as Nikka Whisky (ニッカウヰスキー, nikka uwisukī)

Wi Man (in Korean) or Wei Man (in Chinese) was originally a Chinese military leader from the
Han dynasty Kingdom of Yan. When king Lu Wan of Yan was defeated by the Han in 195 BC, Wi Man fled to Gojoseon in north-western Korea and later usurped power from its king in BC 194, establishing Wiman Joseon.[note 1] Recorded in the Shiji and the Book of Han, Wiman was the first ruler in the history of Korea to have been recorded in documents from the same time period. After Emperor Gaozu of Han suppressed the rebellion of Zang Tu, king of Yan, he appointed general Lu Wan as the new Yan king.
