National Alliance of Women’s Organisations
Who We Are
The National Alliance of Women’s Organisations is an umbrella organisation for over 100 organisations and individuals concerned with making equality between women and men a reality.
What We Do
NAWO acts as a bridge between women’s organisations and decision makers both nationally and internationally. We work to build alliances around issues so that we can improve the situation of women and effect change. We consult our members and communicate their views to policy makers at all levels, to ensure that women’s voices are heard and heeded.
