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:
Immigrant Women’s Speakout Association (IWSA) acknowledges the Barramattagal People of the lands on which we work and operate. We pay our respects and celebrate the diversity of Aboriginal peoples and their ongoing cultures and connections to the lands and waters of NSW.
