Every woman counts

Women’s Association South East Melbourne Australia (WASEMA) Inc

An Australia in which women are confident and able to take their equal place in the social, cultural, economic, educational and political life is our mission.

WASEMA hosts events where women make friends, feel a sense of belonging, and are empowered to meet family, work and security needs, where women from diverse walks of life come to connect across divides of culture, education, ability, age and to be linked in friendship and support.

We exist for families and communities to benefit from the wellbeing, strength, and leadership of women.


Women’s Association South East Melbourne Australia (WASEMA) Inc. is a registered charity and works for the wellbeing of women, especially in South East Melbourne.

It provides a network for women’s groups to share activities, experiences and challenges. The network invites women’s groups, agencies and service providers to meet each month and share information to provide opportunities for engagement.

WASEMA Inc. also provides opportunities for women’s groups to work together and support each other on common projects, funding applications, events and other activities.

WASEMA Inc.’s role is to advocate for women.

WASEMA Inc. creates, plans, develops, and executes activities such as friendship cafes, information sessions, workshops, training, exhibitions, expo’s, mentoring, coaching, wellbeing programs within WASEMA Inc. and/or in collaboration with other organisations, networks, groups or individuals.

Today, due to COVID-19, all activities are delivered online using virtual platforms.

Post-COVID-19 we aim to return to business as usual and our Friendship Cafes and to continue to grow our new online community.
