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. See ABOUT US for our history and background


  • Our LINKS with women's groups, such as ERA, WEL, National Council of Women Victoria, and WILPF and community and trade union organisations and their campaigns.

  • Our PUBLICATIONS - books, video and photographic- including a history of the UAW- Left Wing Ladies, and a Travelling Photographic Exhibition Nothing on a Plate of women's journey towards equity in Victoria from Federation to 2001 (which may be borrowed), and the recent Women's Map of Melbourne. A copy of the map may be viewed from this link. This map sets out places in the CBD of significance in the history of women and celebrates the contribution women have made to the life of this city.

  • We also have a collection of photographs of UAW activities and members since early days and up to the present
