                Background

                In March 1982, 300 women gathered in Sydney to speak out publicly on issues affecting women of non-English speaking background. As a result of this landmark meeting, a working party was convened which led to the establishment of the Immigrant Women's Speakout association of NSW in 1985.

                Since then, Speakout has focused on key areas including education, employment and training, domestic violence, immigration, industrial issues, childcare, health, housing, legal issues, anti-discrimination, and issues of access and equity.
