The Catholic Women's League was established in 1913 as the Catholic Women's Association,(later became the Legion of Catholic Women in 1941 and in 1959 the Catholic Women's League). Its aim was to provide Catholic women of Sydney with a broader society, one which crossed parish boundaries and provided them with a focus for social life. As it evolved, the Parish branches became the power base, with women contributing to parish life as Catechists, Eucharistic Ministers, through hospital visitation, care and support groups, welcoming committees, discussion groups and fundraising. The Catholic Women's League continues to provide a voice for Catholic women in Church and society by addressing social and moral issues affecting family life, particularly women and children. It is affiliated with the Catholic Women's League Australia Inc.
Catholic Women's Social Guild was established in October 1916 in Victoria. One of the aims of the Catholic Women's Social Guild was to improve the lives of women and children so it established Santa Casa in Queenscliff for children of poor parents in delicate health. The guild fundraised for Santa Casa while the Sisters of Mercy ran the Home. The Catholic Women's Social Guild became known as the Catholic Women's League in 1970.

Voices of Faith is an initiative that creates events, media outreach and international network groups to empower Catholic women into decision making roles at local and global levels of the Catholic Church. But we don’t only focus on the current and extremely patriarchal structures of this Church. We also imagine and create completely new and innovative ways women can and must be included right now - without asking for permission
