The Network of Women Students Australia (NOWSA) is an annual conference hosted at different universities each year. NOWSA was established in 1987 with the goal of fostering a grassroots network that autonomously represents women and non-binary people. The conference provides an opportunity for students to engage with political, economic, social, and cultural issues that affect women and allows students to share resources, skills, and knowledge. This year the conference will be held online due to COVID-19. Attendees have the opportunity to work together via online workshops to develop strategies to improve the experiences of women in Australia.
