CWLA Continues Dedicated Work

“I believe in the genius of women. Even in the darkest periods that genius is found, which is the leaven of human progress and history.” Blessed Pope John Paul II

The Catholic Women’s League of Australia (CWLA) is the national peak body representing the League's seven member organisations located throughout Australia.  Addressing social justice and ethical questions is one of their primary tasks and they seek to influence legislative and administrative bodies at all levels in order to preserve the dignity of the human person. 

In essence, the CWLA strive to be a voice for the voiceless.

They are a Non-Government Organisation (NGO), have consultative (Roster) status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and are a member organisation of the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations (WUCWO). They work together with 5 million women in more than 60 countries to promote the presence, participation and co-responsibility of Catholic women in society and the Church, in order to enable them to fulfil their mission of evangelisation and to work for human development.  In 2006, WUCWO was erected by the Holy See as a Public International Association of the Faithful.

The work of the CWLA is dedicated to Our Lady Help of Christians and the Holy Spirit.
