The Australian Women’s and Gender Studies Association (AWGSA) is the leading organization representing researchers, academics, and students in the fields of Women’s Studies and Gender Studies in Australia. As the peak body for these disciplines, AWGSA is committed to promoting and advancing feminist scholarship, teaching, and research in the country.

AWGSA plays a vital role in shaping the landscape of Women’s and Gender Studies by advocating for the recognition and importance of these fields in academic institutions and society as a whole. The association actively engages with government bodies, universities, and other relevant stakeholders to ensure that women’s and gender issues are given the attention they deserve and that feminist perspectives are integrated into policy discussions and decision-making processes.

Advancing Women’s and Gender Studies in Australia

Empowering Scholars and Students through Conferences, Seminars, and Workshops

One of the primary objectives of AWGSA is to promote the teaching, study, and research of women’s and gender studies in Australia. The association organizes conferences, seminars, and workshops that provide platforms for scholars, researchers, and students to present their work, exchange ideas, and foster collaborations. These events contribute to the development of knowledge and facilitate critical discussions on a wide range of topics related to gender, sexuality, social justice, and intersectionality.

AWGSA also serves as a national voice on women’s and gender studies issues. Through its advocacy efforts, the association raises awareness about gender inequality, discrimination, and social injustices. It actively contributes to public debates and policy discussions, working towards gender equality and a more inclusive society.

In addition, AWGSA fosters international connections and collaboration by promoting links with other feminist organizations and associations worldwide. By engaging with global feminist networks, AWGSA stays informed about international developments, shares resources and knowledge, and contributes to the global feminist movement.

AWGSA is committed to promoting feminist pedagogy and advocating for equal access to education. We actively engage with governments and universities, making submissions that advocate for policies and practices ensuring equal educational opportunities for all. Our goal is to challenge patriarchal structures within academia and create inclusive learning environments that empower individuals of all genders.
