Who is the National Council of Women of NSW?


Our Aims

Promote such conditions of life as will ensure all people, especially women and children, have an opportunity for full and free development.

To uphold social, civil, and ethical values in the community.

To promote the interests and advancement of women.

To form a link with National Councils of Women in other states/territories through the National Council of Women of Australia Limited and other countries through the International Council of Women.


Since 1896, NCW NSW has been a steadfast voice advocating for women along their diverse paths. Our members unite in our mission for positive change, influencing decisions within the political, economic, and social spheres. We have dismantled barriers as we championed equality and equity for women in New South Wales.


Our differences are our strengths; together, we are the rich tapestry of women in New South Wales. Each brings unique talents, unwavering service, insights and perspectives, and extensive experiences. Together, we are a formidable force for good, and by working collaboratively, we achieve remarkable things.

Making a difference

We are dedicated to leveraging our knowledge and resources to advance our vision of equity for all women. As a membership organisation, we actively support our community in realizing their goals and aspirations. Serving as advocates, we strive to amplify the voices of our members.
