Medical Women’s Society of NSW
The Medical Women’s Society (MWS) of NSW promotes friendship and understanding between medical women throughout the world, while working against gender inequalities in the medical profession and advocating for and supporting the health and welfare of the local and international community.
In 2014, the MWS was involved in the successful campaign against the $7 GP co-payment, supported efforts to tackle the Ebola crisis and drew public attention to the closure of several women’s refuges.
The MWS strives to:
· improve the health and welfare of all persons, especially women and children, in the Australian community;
· promote the professional development of medical women locally, nationally and internationally;
· work collaboratively to advance the status of women; and
· participate in conventions, seminars and conferences, locally, nationally and internationally.
Current and forthcoming activities include a biannual networking dinner, a mentoring program and a regular newsletter.
