Administrative history

The Union of Australian Women was a national organisation, formed in 1950. Its aim was to work for the status and wellbeing of women across the world. It was involved in a wide variety of campaigns that concern women, and networked with other women's community and union groups on such issues. The national branch closed in 1995 and the Queensland branch disbanded in 1999.
