高雄市婦女新知協會創立於1992117日,當時社會對女性的弱勢與平等權益並不重視,許多性別相關法案亦未立法。一群關心性別平權與社會需求的女性,有感立足高雄,在地婦女權益不容忽視,於是在婦女新知基金會的支持下,組成地方協會,關注婦女相關議題,著重性別意識培力,以凝聚南方共識,推動友善城市為宗旨。

目前工作方向包括:性別及婦女政策之在地監督、性別法律宣導及人才培育、行人路權倡議、長照政策需求調查及監督等,同時經營從母姓俱樂部、女同志運動社群。

About us

Our institution was founded on November 7th 1992.  Back then, laws, including Family Violence and Service Act, Act of Gender Equality in Employment and Gender Equality Education Act had yet been established.  The society paid little attention to the minority women were subject to as well as the issues of equality in general.  Therefore, a group of female citizens in Kaohsiung who were concerned with gender equality founded a local institution with the support of the Awakening Foundation.  With this, they spared a room for various parties in Southern Taiwan to reach consensus so that a society could ever be constructed where all people are equal.
