BACKGROUND OF NCWO

The National Council of Women’s Organisations Malaysia (NCWO) was officially established on 25th August 1963 to act as a consultative coordinating and advisory body to raise the status of women and their participation in national development. It has 125 affiliates, which act as independent and viable organizations pursuing their own programmes and they lend strength and solidarity to NCWO.

The formation of NCWO was the major step in the history of our country. Unity, Understanding, Co-operation, Sacrifice, Conviction and Determination form the corner stone of the Council. The sustained and dynamic leadership NCWO has given to women’s organizations has enabled them to pursue programmes in more positive and constructive manner.
NCWO AS A CATALYST

NCWO has been a catalyst for change in all areas of national activity. From equal pay to the position of women in marriage separation, divorce, to legal question of maintenance, custody of children, division of property in cases of divorce, to the appointment of women to assist in Departments of Islamic Affairs in the States, the NCWO has been the most effective, determined and vocal advocate for women in our nation.

The Council has taken a leadership position for those of our people in lower income groups and even more critical, to those below the poverty line. Our pleas for more well co-ordinated programmes for low cost housing for those living in squatter areas and other slum have been both repetitive and constant in our annual budget dialogue sessions with the Minister of Finance.
