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.

NCW NSW looks forward to the opportunity to join with other State Councils at the Mid Term Conference organised by the National Council of Women of Australia which will be held at Rydge's Hotel, Capital Hill, Canberra, ACT from 14 - 16 June, 2017. At the conference, constituent councils will put forward resolutions relating to national matters and vote 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.

Jean Arnot Luncheon is on 12 May at NSW Parliament House - See 2017 News and Events. Bookings and nominations of women in their 90th year for recognition certificates for their contribution to their communities have closed. Nominations were due by 17 April,  bookings by 24 April.
