AWOC is a conference for representatives of Australian women's organisations. It replaced the traditional 'Pre-Round Tables' which were generally held on the days preceding the National Women's Round Table (NWRT). It brings the input of organisations not participating in the NWRT to that forum.
The inaugural AWOC was organised by the National Women's Justice Coalition, the Nursing Mothers' Association of Australia, Women's Electoral Lobby Australia and the YWCA, with program input from representatives of national women's organisations on Pamela's List.
