The Western Australian Association of University Women came into being in 1923, with Dr. Roberta Jull as first president. According to its 1965 constitution the objectives of the Association were: a) to act as an organisation which affords opportunity for the expression of opinion and for concerted action by university women in matters of common interest; b) to co-operate through the Australian Federation of University Women with the International Federation of University Women which exists for the promotion of scholarship, understanding and friendship among the university women of the world without discrimination as to race, colour, religion or political opinion.
