Women's Collective (WoCo)

The Women’s Collective is a horizontal autonomous organising space for radically left-wing feminist activism. We are one of the most radical and active campus feminist collectives in the country.

WoCo has organised at the University of Sydney for over 50 years, primarily focusing on activism against sexual violence on and off campus, and for abortion access and reproductive justice.

We fight to free all who suffer under patriarchy. As a collective which meets and works on the stolen land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, in a colonial state of ongoing racial violence, we must centre Indigenous justice in our fight for feminist justice. WoCo fights alongside the First Nations peoples of Warrang and the many other countries that make up this land to decolonise the illegitimate settler society of so-called ‘australia’.

Indigenous women are at the forefront of colonial and patriarchal violence as the fastest growing prison population in the world, and face deeply gendered state violence as mothers and community caretakers of children who are incarcerated, brutalised, or murdered by the racist police and prison systems, or stolen by the foster care system that continues the Stolen Generation to this day. First Nations women also bear the brunt of state sanctioned destruction of sacred country, such as the sacred birthing trees of the Djab Wurrung people.

There is no feminist justice without Indigenous justice and decolonisation. We are an unapologetically abolitionist and anti-capitalist collective that fights for true liberation from police, prisons, and capitalist exploitation. It is at these intersections where the worst patriarchal violence resides. WoCo does not settle for neoliberal or reformist incremental reforms, and actively organises against carceral feminism in our fight for true liberation from patriarchy, imperialism, and capitalism.

Iggy Boyd and Alev Saracoglu are the 2023 SRC Women's Officers.
