The precursor to the Women’s Bureau was established in 1963 within the Department of Labour and National Service, with the intention that it primarily be a research unit that would also serve as a point of contact for non-governmental women’s organisations. This became the Women’s Bureau in 1968, and was concerned with such issues as equal pay and childcare policies. The Bureau was dissolved in 1997.
