Summary
  • "From 1956 to 1962 the Country Women's Association (CWA) in New South Wales attempted to assist the assimilation of Aboriginal women into white rural communities by establishing Aboriginal CWA branches on mission stations and reserves. White CWA members were encouraged to 'mix' with their Aboriginal counterparts at joint meetings, sharing their skills in cookery, craft and domestic management. This article examines the experiences of CWA women at Griffith in South Western New South Wales. Given the conservative worldview of CWA members and the firmly entrenched colour-bar in rural communities, the paper questions how and why such an initiative succeeded." [ Authors abstract ]
  • Discussion on Aboriginal branches of the Country Women's Association which were established on five missions around New South Wales, focusing on the Three Ways Bridge CWA, established in 1962, sponsored by the Griffith CWA; Nell Broome's role in the Griffith CWA and with the Aboriginal CWA, friendships with Aboriginal women and role in pressing for positive change in the daily circumstances for Aboriginal women and children; includes discussion of the promotion of contraception during the CWA meetings
