We bring together women from agencies across New Zealand and together we participate in the annual Convention on the Status of Women at the United Nations, and present a statement on the themes of CSW to our Minister of Women.
We host an annual conference which integrates speakers from a range of backgrounds and community services in order to discuss and work towards solutions for discrimination against women in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The conference reports are available for further public interest and reference.
Through our unique “How are we doing” survey, we independently collect national-level data on the status of women every five years to report against the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform For Action
We stand in solidarity
Together with our member and sister organisations, we advocate that human rights are women’s rights. We are a member of the New Zealand Human Rights Commission’s Diversity Action Programme and the Ministry for Women’s International Caucus
