Switzerland

LDH
Schweizer Jurisdiktion von Le Droit Humain
, mixed order.


GLMS
Gemischte Großloge der Schweiz (GGLS), mixed order;


Lithos
Lithos Confederation of Lodges. According to the French Wikipedia about Lithos, this Belgian “pluralistic” order (they have mixed gender, men and female lodges) has lodges in Belgium, but also in Switzerland (L’Amitié, Genève; Humanisme et Lumières, Genève; Septentrion, Penthalaz) and Germany.
(I have not been able to find out if the lodges are mixed.)


Memphis
Rite of Memphis-Misraïm is a combination of the Rite of Misraïm that was founded by Cagliostro in 1738 and the Rite of Memphis that was founded by Jacques Etienne Marconis de Nègre in 1838. In 1889 General Garibaldi combined the two the Rite of Memphis-Misraïm.

Nowadays there is an international organisation working in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Spain, France, Martinique, Mauritius, New Caledonia, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Uruguay, USA, England, Venezuela.
There are other organsations with similar names.

The website does not say that members have to be master Masons in another lodge, so it does not appear to be a system of side/higher degrees. On the other hand, the website does not say anything about the “blue” grades of Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason, so I am not 100% sure.
What the website also does not state specifically, is that Memphis-Misraïm lodges are mixed. It does say however under “conditions for admission” that: “You must have been questioned by several Brothers or sisters” (my emphasis). Cagliostro wanted to admit women, so it sounds like this tradition is still followed.


GLFMM160
Grande Loge Francaise de Memphis-Misraïm is another Memphis-Misraïm order (see above) with 9 lodges in France (8 mixed, 1 men-only), Switzerland (men-only), 2 on Réunion (one mixed, one men-only) and 1 on Guadaloupe (mixed).

NOTE, there are other, (independent,) Memphis-Misraïm lodges in Switzerland, one “loge masculine” (called “Horus-Ra“), but also mixed: Khepri and Le Blé.
