The Country Womens Association
For Women, Through Women and By Women

The Country Womens Association (CWA) was founded by Mrs Grace Munro from Keera Station, Bingara in 1922.  She believed passionately that a better life for country women could be provided ‘for women, through women and by women’ – now part of the CWA motto.

 The Country Womens Association is now the largest voluntary women's organisation in Australia.
