It was created in 1999 as a partnership between the National Foundation for Australian Women and the University of Melbourne and has two main areas of activity. Firstly, it supports original research on the lives and contributions of individual women and women’s organisations and makes that information available through the online Australian Women’s Register ( Secondly, AWAP encourages women and women’s organisations to preserve their history by depositing records in collecting institutions for the benefit of future generations.
