National Council of Women of Australia

Welcome to the website of the National Council of Women of Australia. Our site will provide you with information about NCWA and its activities in Australia.

Farewell - On 27 March 2014, our then Patron -
Her Excellency the Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO
left the office of Australia’s Governor-General
.  We thank her for her strong leadership and her commitment to all Australians and wise counsel to Australia’s Governments throughout her term.  It has been our pleasure to have her as our Patron.  We wish both she, and her husband Mr Michael Bryce, the very best of all that is possible in their ’retirement’.

For more than 115 years National Council members have been making a difference in Australia. NCW New South Wales was started in 1896.  It wasn’t just about ’getting the vote’ - it is about achieving equity and security across all endeavours that encompass life in Australia.  Australia was one of the earliest countries to join the
International Council of Women, the world’s oldest international women’s organisation.

NCWA is a national non-government umbrella organisation with broadly humanitarian and educational objectives, which seeks to raise the awareness of women and girls to their rights and responsibilities as citizens and to encourage the participation of women in all aspects of community life.

NCWA links NCW groups across Australia, each with diverse affiliates, in a federal structure and provides a forum for considered debate on policy matters brought forward by the constituent Councils.

Individually and in partnership, NCWA works for improved conditions for women and children, especially the most vulnerable. In the ACT, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia members maintain an active program of seminars, conferences, consultations, submissions and publications.

The State/Territory National Councils of Women welcome both individual and affiliate/group memberships. Whether you are part of a women’s organisation or an individual you are invited to contact the relevant State and Territory Councils to discuss membership. Contact details are in the ‘contact us’ section or go to their own sites by using the links on the menu. 

There is still work to do!
