NCWSA ADVOCACY

As an organisation with over 118 years of advocacy history, we advocate for the rights of women, locally, nationally (through NCWA) and internationally (through International Council of Women, ICW) and our Category 1 Status with the UN’s Economic and Social Council, ECOSOC). 


NCWSA believe that all women are entitled to human rights; where rights are inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, sexuality or any other status, without discrimination.
