Our Origins and Background

Women’s Forum Australia emerged from a gathering of more than 750 women in December 2004. The gathering sought fresh initiatives to support women who were pregnant in difficult circumstances and provide them with real alternatives that would not present a risk to their health and wellbeing. This forum demonstrated the level of grass roots support for a new organisation, and following this momentum, a founding board was established in 2005. Women’s Forum is an established independent women’s think tank that undertakes research, education and public policy development about social, economic, health and cultural issues affecting women.
