The Norwegian Association for Women’s Rights (Norsk Kvinnesaksforening, NKF) is dedicated to eliminating attitudes, laws and regulations that are discriminatory towards women and which prevent gender equality. It is the oldest and leading women’s rights organisation in Norway, founded in 1884 by 171 prominent women and men, including several Norwegian Prime Ministers. The association has successfully campaigned for women’s right to education, the right to vote, the right to work and the establishment of what is now the Equality and Anti-Discrimination Ombud.

NKF is a member of the International Alliance of Women (IAW), an NGO with general consultative status with UN ECOSOC, of the Norwegian Women’s Lobby, an umbrella organisation for Norwegian women’s organisations, and of the Forum for Women and Development, a cooperation forum for organisations involved in development issues in the Global South.

NKF is non-partisan and open to women and men. NKF has branches in several Norwegian cities.

Marit Nybakk (Member of Parliament, 1986–2017) has served as President of NKF since 2016. For our executive board, see here.
