Our Story

In March 1982, three hundred women gathered in Sydney to speak out publicly on issues affecting migrant and refugee women of non-English Speaking background. As a result of this landmark meeting, a working party was convened which led to the establishment of the Immigrant Women’s Speakout Association in 1985 and its incorporation in 1987.
Since then, Immigrant Women’s Speakout Association has focused on these key areas:

  • Anti-discrimination
  • Childcare
  • Domestic violence
  • Education
  • Employment and training
  • Health
  • Housing
  • Immigration
  • Industrial issues
  • Issues of access and equity
  • Legal issues
