IAWN is one of the networks of the world wide Anglican Communion. It was formed in November 1996 following a consultation convened by the Anglican Consultative Council and funded by the Mothers' Union and the United Thank Offering of the Episcopal Church Women of the Episcopal Church of the United States.
Women from 14 of the (then) 32 Provinces of the Anglican Communion met in London and agreed that an international Anglican Women's Network be formed. Within official church structures, it reports to the Anglican Consultative Council.
