Immigrant Women's Speakout Association grew out of a gathering of women in New South Wales that was organised in 1982. The Immigrant and Refugee Women's Speakout was an occasion that attracted 200 women from around Australia with the aim of encouraging them to discuss pressing issues for women of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Similar occasions were organised in Adelaide and Brisbane the following year.
