Introducing Pacific Women’s Watch (New Zealand) Inc.

Pacific Women’s Watch (New Zealand) Inc. (PWW(NZ))was established five years ago to be a link to the Asia Pacific Women’s Watch (APWW), the umbrella Watch which monitors, review and reports on the status of women in the Asia-Pacific Region.   Over 60 percent of the world’s women live in the Asia-Pacific Region, one of the five regions recognised by the United Nations.

The New Zealand organisation, which became incorporated in 2001, is part of a sub-regional network reporting within the wider region.
