Profits from our online shop are reinvested back into our central mission to positively impact the lives of more than two million women, young women and girls by the end of 2023.
YWCA Australia is an evolving intersectional feminist organisation focused on improving gender equality for women, young women and girls. For 140 years, we have challenged the systems, structures and policies that act as barriers to women, especially young women, achieving their full potential.

More about our products
The last thing we want to promote with an online shop is exploitative consumerism wrapped in symbolic girl power. Feminism must be intersectional. That's why we've chosen Das T-shirt Automat as our print-on-demand merchandise supplier.
Print-on-demand means that we don't bulk-order products by guessing what people might want to purchase. By only printing and producing a merch item when it's ordered, we reduce the possibility of unsold items ending up in landfill.
We chose Das because like us, they're committed to social and environmental responsibility.
- Their items are sourced from AS Colour where the factories are either WRAP Certified or BSCI certified, and all are Oeko Tex certified. AS Colour are working towards removing plastic from their supply chain and are part of the Better Cotton Initiative.
- All the inks that Das use to print are water based, child safe and Oeko Tex certified.
- Das use Hero Packaging compostable mailers and their other packing materials are 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
From time to time, we may source extra product lines outside of Das's supply. When this happens, we will always ensure that the item is sustainably and ethically produced and sourced.
