Aims of Women’s Studies Association (NZ)/Pae Akoranga Wāhine

The WSA (NZ)/Pae Akoranga Wāhine is a feminist organisation formed to promote radical social change through the medium of women’s studies.  We believe that a feminist perspective necessarily acknowledges oppression on the grounds of race, sexuality, class and disability as well as gender.  We acknowledge Māori as tangata whenua of Aotearoa.  This means that we have a particular responsibility to address their oppression among our work and activities.

 

The principles of the Association are:

  • To undertake, promote and disseminate research about women by women from a feminist perspective
  • To inform and educate women about women in culturally appropriate ways
  • To encourage the preservation of existing material about women in culturally appropriate ways
  • To facilitate the establishment of women’s studies courses with a feminist perspective
  • To undertake and promote the publication of material about women
  • To organise and participate in activities, conferences, seminars and displays in furtherance of the aims of the organisation.
