The Women's Studies Association (New Zealand) is a small, voluntary, non-profit organisation, independent of any institution. It is a feminist organization, formed in 1976 to promote radical social change through the medium of women's studies. We now describe our mission as promoting feminist scholarship and activism.

Your subscriptions support us to undertake a wide range of activites, including:

  • a conference, usually held every two years (members receive discounts on enrolment)
  • special events from time to time
  • our website at which carries news and information about the Association and its activities and will increasingly provide access to a rich range of past WSA and members' publications
  • an electronic newsletter three times a year, e-mailed to members
  • a twice yearly journal, currently available free on our website
  • an e-list, which provides rapid communications to members (members are offered the opportunity to join the e-list when they join the Association; currently, non-members can be on the e-list too)
  • a Facebook page, which is enjoying increasing traffic (search for wsanz on Facebook)
  • and a range of other activities, including submissions, publicizing activities of sister organizations and any activities that fit within our aims which include promoting feminist scholarship and women's studies and preserving our heritage.
