Changing the World

The world we are striving for is one where women are equally represented in leadership and decision-making positions. A world where violence against women does not exist. A world where women experience health and wellbeing. And a world where women have control over their choices and their bodies.

YWCA Adelaide is the leading voice for young women in South Australia advocating for change which will advance women’s rights and women’s leadership. We articulate our views through Submissions to the State Budget and government inquiries and we are a prominent voice in the media. Through campaigns YWCA Adelaide promotes and provokes social, attitudinal and behavioural change.

Our public positions on issues are expressed in our Policy Platform.

YWCA Adelaide’s policy and advocacy is informed and influenced by the policy positions of YWCA Australia and World YWCA.
