Summary

Australian Women in War is an online exhibition listing Australian women, and women's organisations, who offered their assistance in the Boer War, World Wars and subsequent conflicts. It provides links to biographical, bibliographical and archival information relating to a small selection of these individuals and organisations in the Australian Women's Archives Project register. The project was a joint initiative of the New South Wales Local Committee of the Australian Women's Archives Project (AWAP) and the Australian Government Department of Veterans' Affairs.

From the information obtained the following conclusions were drawn: All associations, whether military or civilian, were proud of their volunteer status; ex-members made few distinctions between their service and association, in actual fact they were seen as one; some of the significant people suggested for biographies served in more than one conflict.
