For more than two decades the National Foundation for Australian Women (NFAW) has set the agenda for women's issues nationally and given weight to the collective voice of Australian women. Today as we progress the interests of women and maintain and make accessible an extraordinary record of achievement, we keep the aspirations of women alive to be handed on to new generations.
'We speak in the circles that listen to and act on what we have to say'
