The National Council of Women of New Zealand works toward a gender equal New Zealand. By building understanding and driving action for gender equality, we enable New Zealanders to have the freedom and opportunity to determine their own future.
We send out a weekly e-newsletter On Balance which summarises the latest gender equality news. Sign up to receive it here.
Every month, NCWNZ members receive an update on current issues via our newsletter, The Circular. Non-members can subscribe to The Circular for $50 per year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our members have the opportunity to contribute to discussion and submissions on policies that impact the opportunities and welfare of women. NCWNZ represents these views to policymakers.
We Take Action
Our current work includes:
- Enabling women’s potential: the social, economic and ethical imperative
- Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW)

We are a member of the Pay Equity Challenge Coalition and 26 for Babies: Campaign to Extend Paid Parental Leave.
