NWR around the world

NWR is an international organisation of women's discussion groups, with members in Australia, Great Britain, Europe and Africa. Each group decides its own programme, providing its members with opportunities to participate in stimulating discussions on a wide range of topics from the serious to the light-hearted.

The web of NWR friendship stretches from the UK via South Africa and Zimbabwe to Australia with an individual member in New Zealand. The aims of NWR are to focus on a nominated subject through personal research and communal activities so that a better understanding and knowledge can be gained and shared. Speakers who are experts in their particular field of endeavour may also be invited to attend and address the meetings.
