Summary

Womensport Queensland Association (WQA) was incorporated in 1994 following a successful inaugural year in 1993 under the banner of the Women' s Sports Foundation. It cam into being because its founding members believed that Queensland sportswomen deserved public acknowledgement of their achievements.

Up until recently, the main aim of the organisation was to increase recognition of Queensland's sportswomen and their achievements. In 2007, the association plans to increase its advocacy role, by being 'leaders in inspiring and creating winning opportunities for Queensland women and girls in sport'.
