The UAW is a national organisation formed in 1950 to work for the status and well being of women in a peaceful and environmentally safe world. We seek to improve the lives of women through focussing on issues of equity and social justice. We also highlight the often hidden role of women in Australian society, particularly women's contribution to its economic, social, cultural and political life.
