Women's Forum Archive
The ASAA Women’s Caucus was established in 1978 with the aim of promoting research and teaching on women in Asia and promoting the status of women within the Asian Studies profession. For a brief history of the Women’s Caucus see Rebecca King "Australians studying Asia: the ASAA 1976-1997". The Women’s Caucus changed its name to the Women’s Forum at the 2006 ASAA Biennial Conference held at the University of Wollongong.
Since the late 1970s, the Women’s Forum has played a significant role in raising the profile of women doing research on Asia in Australia, as well as research about women in Asia. The following site has been established to preserve the history of this important group.
