The Union of Australian Women was established in 1950 with its stated aims being to advance the status of women as citizens, workers and mothers, to improve the life of women and their families and the well-being of children in a world free from war. The UAW is a non-party political organisation open to all women who agree with its aims and program and takes up issues of concern to women in an active military way ranging from discussions, letter writing through to demonstrations. The UAW has worked closely with the trade union movement and has been involved in many campaigns around issues including peace, price control, women's health and equal pay
