About us

Women’s Pioneer Housing was established in 1920 by women and men who believed in gender equality and the need to redress the disadvantages women experienced in obtaining and retaining a secure home. Their aim was

“…to cater for the housing requirements of professional and other women of moderate means who require individual homes at moderate rents….”

Despite changes in social attitudes and legislation, women are still disadvantaged when it comes to getting housing, owing to their relatively low incomes and the extra responsibilities many have of caring for others. Women’s Pioneer’s objective is to interpret our founders’ intentions in a 21st century social and political context.
