The National Women’s Advisory Council was established as a new channel of communication between the Women’s Affairs Branch of the Federal Government and the wider community of women. Chaired by Beryl Beaurepaire, its members included Aboriginal, migrant, rural and trade union women.

The National Women’s Advisory Council research budget enabled the conduct and sponsorship of a number of research projects into women’s economic circumstances, migrant women, mothers of disabled children, and the aged. (Source: National Library of Australia)
