The WAAC symbol was designed in the 1970s, combining the universally recognised symbol for 'woman' with a stylised 'Aleph'.
In the Greek alphabet, the Aleph (often referred to as 'Alpha') is the first letter. Aleph has long symbolised the idea of 'beginning'.
These two powerful and recognised symbols, when combined, indicate that WAAC is a place women can begin a process of liberation, with the most basic of "women's rights" ~ the right to physical and emotional integrity.
We are proud to continue the tradition of using this symbol, to honour the foremothers of WAAC ~ many of whom were also active in other women's liberation organisations.
