Summary

The Canberra Association of Women Graduates was formed in 1944 with the aim of facilitating 'inter-communication and co-operation between women of universities of all nations' (1944 Constitution). The Association was affiliated with the Australian Federation of University Women and the International Federation of University Women. Membership was comprised of women holding degrees from any university recognised by the Australian Federation of University Women.

In 2009, in line with resolutions of the affiliated National body, the organisation changed its name to the Australian Federation of Graduate Women (Australian Capital Territory) Inc.
