CWA Awareness Day

The Country Womens Association of Australia is the largest women's organisation in Australia with a membership of approx. 25,500 in 1500 branches around the States and Territory.

They aim to improve the conditions for women and children and make life better for families, especially those living in rural and remote Australia.

CWA is a self-funded, non party political and non-sectarian organisation who's opinion is sought in many arenas. We maintain a strong working relationship with governments in all States and the Territory which shows a healthy respect for the "human face and grass roots perspective" which the C.W.A. of Australia has projected for over 70 years.

The Country Women's Association of NSW will be taking time on Wednesday 8 September to acknowledge and raise awareness of their work in the community over the past 88 years.

State President Elaine Armstrong says "After many years of just getting on with the jobs, we thought it high time to reflect on some of our achievements. We are encouraging women to join a CWA branch so that the great work can continue," she said.

Starting from humble beginnings in 1922, the CWA of NSW now boasts some 430 branches throughout the state and over 11,000 members who are looking and listening for ways to improve the opportunities for women and their families in local communities.

On Wednesday, 8th September 2010, there are a number of initiatives planned across the state to celebrate the achievements of dedicated members of the local CWA branches as part of our state-wide activities
