As a feminist organisation AWHN:
- acts, speaks, writes, and advocates on behalf of women’s issues and rights, and identifies injustice to women in the social status quo;
- advocates for equity practices to eliminate the barriers to inclusion, recognising that inclusion leads to equality;
- contributes to and participates in a strong national autonomous feminist movement to articulate the issues of importance to women’s health, and;
- as a key catalyst for government action, public support and attention, AWHN works with the media on issues which are important for public discussion.
