The Women's Studies Association is a small, voluntary, non-profit organisation, independent of any institution. Your subscriptions support us to undertake a wide range of activities, including:

  • a conference, usually held every two years (members receive discounts on enrolment)
  • special events, which from September 2014 will include regional events around Suffrage Day and International Women's Day each year (members receive discounts on enrolment)
  • 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
  • a newsletter three times a year (from July 2014 this will be e-mailed to members, either in PDF format or via links to our website)
  • 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, but that will shortly change)
  • a Facebook page, which is enjoying increasing traffic (search for wsanz on Facebook)
  • conference proceedings (2013 can be ordered via our website)
  • 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.

Membership benefits, as well as support for the Association's feminist activities, include discounts on events and publications, and the right to participate in our affairs through having your say, contributing to activities or being elected to committees and working groups.
