About the National Council of Women – Auckland Branch

The National Council of Women NZ has been around since 1896 and is the peak body for women’s organisations in Aotearoa NZ.

The Auckland branch is the oldest, and currently one of the largest, NCWNZ branches in the country. We date from 1918, and current organisations involved include YWCA, various unions, a large number of faith groups, three major political parties, and other important women’s groups such as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, NZ Women’s Watch, Bridgebuilders International, ZONTA, Soroptimists and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom.

We welcome new members either as individuals or on behalf of organisations with an interest in women’s issues.

Our local work includes organising the annual Suffrage Day celebration at Khartoum Place, the Dame Dorothy Winstone Dinner, and usually a film and a theatre evening each year. We also give input to national action items from our mother organisation, and resolve on issues of local concern for local action, such as lobbying Auckland Council to adopt a Living Wage.
