NCW NSW is one of the oldest women’s organisations in Australia. We have been recognising and fighting for women’s rights and equal opportunities for 121 years.

Our dedicated women continue this unbroken service to women’s welfare and social justice by influencing public opinion, lobbying governments, initiating and supporting projects, and offering scholarships and awards.

Members of NCW NSW  joined with other State Councils at the Mid Term Conference organised by the National Council of Women of Australia held at Rydge's Hotel, Capital Hill, Canberra, ACT from 14 - 16 June, 2017. For full details of the program and registration, go to National Council of Women of Australia website To see a quick overview of the program, click here.
At the conference, State Councils put forward resolutions relating to national matters and voted on them. It is timely to reflect on the resolutions that were put forward and passed at the NCWA Triennial Conference held in Alice Springs in October, 2015. It is pleasing that progress has been made on some of these issues but the need for advocacy continues. Click here for a summary of the resolutions that were made in 2015. For the resolutions considered at the 2017 Mid-Term Conference, see the May 2017 Newsletter.

Don't forget that NCW is celebrating the 121st anniversary of our foundation at the Foundation Day Luncheon on Wednesday, 9 August, 2017 at Cello's Restaurant, Castlereagh Boutique Hotel, 169 Castlereagh Street, Sydney.  Bookings $85 pp.  Each year at the luncheon we ask members and affiliated organisations to help us find those women who have continued to work for the status of women and their families but have not received official recognition. If you nominate someone, you need to be an Individual Member of NCW NSW or have the endorsement of one of our Affiliated Organisations. The person nominated does not need to be a member of NCW NSW.

Bookings close Friday, 28 July.  Click here for a booking form.
