For over 50 years, VIEW (Voice, Interests and Education of Women) women have enjoyed getting together with friends, hearing an informative guest speaker and exchanging interesting ideas. VIEW Clubs meet at any time of the day, most Clubs meet over lunch or dinner.
VIEW brings women together - women who live in 400 metropolitan, regional and rural communities. Nearly 20,000 VIEW women tap into a wide range of activities each month, in between Club meetings, into other optional activities such as tours, craft days, theatre parties and outings. VIEW has no political or religious affiliation.
VIEW women are just like you - they are working outside the home, or at home during the day; they have time to share or little time to spare; they have skills to show and to learn. Whichever applies to you, you'll find a friendly welcome in VIEW.
Don't forget the fun
Many VIEW women joined to meet new people, and enjoy getting together and making new friends. 20,000 women can't be wrong - their experience VIEW as an important, fulfilling and fun social activity.
Do good things
Many VIEW women joined to do good things. VIEW women, as a part of The Smith Family, are committed to providing educational opportunities for Australia's children.
Already VIEW women sponsor over 980 students on The Smith Family's Learning for Life program. Importantly, VIEW women will tell you that some of their best times are when they work together on a worthwhile project in their local neighbourhood. Practical support such as reading at local schools, working with kids at a local learning club after school, or teaching craft to primary school students are just some of these rewarding activities.
VIEW empowers women. Being a VIEW woman enables you to:
- make new friends in a vast Australia-wide network
- broaden your horizons
- develop new skills - such as leadership, new technologies, public speaking, etc.
- try new things and develop new interests
- build self confidence
- travel with friends to events, conferences and the national Convention
- have more fun!

- A one-off joining fee of $15.00, plus a $10.00 annual fee, will open the door to VIEW.
