CWA

Country Women’s Association

Overview

The Country Women’s Association (CWA) was formed in 1922 when country women were fighting isolation and a lack of health facilities. Within the first year, the Association was a unified, resourceful group that was going from strength to strength. The members worked tirelessly to set up baby health care centres, fund bush nurses, build and staff maternity wards, hospitals, schools, rest homes, seaside and mountain holiday cottages and much more.

Throughout NSW and ACT, branches meet to take on projects, as well as handicraft, cookery and cultural activities.

The CWA also provides a support network for women as well as lobby to improve conditions and welfare of women and families especially in rural areas.
