Summary

Established in 1907, Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) is Australia's major water safety and rescue authority and is one of the largest volunteer organisations in the country. Their mission is 'to provide a safe beach and aquatic environment throughout Australia.'

Women had an active involvement in surf-lifesaving for many years before 1980, when they eventually became eligible to become active patrolling members of the association.
