An organisation for the women of Wales and a means for cooperative action

The objectives of WAW are the advancement of equality and human rights for the women of Wales and the promotion of equality in particular but not exclusively by all or any of the following means:

  • by identifying areas of need and bearing in mind the scattered and often isolated character of many communities in Wales, to facilitate contact between individuals and groups for mutual support and to stimulate discussion, consultation and action on equality;
  • by providing technical advice to government on equality issues;
  • international advocacy on equality for women;
  • commenting on proposed equality legislation;
  • raising awareness of equality issues.

Membership is open to all women in Wales who share the Aims of the Association.
Membership is open also to women living elsewhere who have connections with Wales and who have affinity with and interest in life in Wales.
