Who we are
The National Council of Women of New Zealand (NCWNZ) is the country's leading women's organisation.
We work to promote women's rights and equality.
We do this through:
- sharing information
- representation, and
NCWNZ is currently focused on:
- keeping women safe - at home, in education, in the workplace and at play
- financial sustainability
- positive wellbeing
- Regionally - Christchurch Branch, for example, has launched a research project to record women's experiences of the Canterbury earthquakes.
- Nationally - We are co-ordinating the NZ Non-Governmental Organisations report to the UN committee monitoring discrimination against women.
- Internationally - We are working with international partners in a campaign demanding that Facebook removes pages promoting rape and discrimination against women.
NCWNZ is an umbrella organisation representing a diverse membership, which includes women's organisations and individual women.
