The National Council of Jewish Women of Australia, Victoria [NCJWA Vic] was established by Dr Fanny Reading MBE in 1927. At a time when women were virtually unrepresented in any Australian Parliament, Dr Reading gave Jewish women a voice and provided an outstanding model of leadership. She spoke about responsibility, and her ‘parliament of volunteers’ which set the agenda for activism that continues to this day.
NCJWA Vic continues this legacy today, empowering women and girls and providing a voice for Jewish women, through our work in the Jewish and broader communities.
Jewish values inspire NCJWA Vic to empower women to achieve their potential and improve the quality of life for all women, girls and their families.
We achieve this through our work in the Jewish and broader communities by:
Empowering women at key points across the lifecycle;
Advancing the status of women and girls;
Promoting social cohesion and human rights; and
Supporting the empowerment of Israeli women and girls.
