AFR is the first democratic women organization founded soon after the Revolution in December 1989, as a result of a necessity for unification, organization, representation and protection of women rights in Romania.

AFR was legally established through court decision no. 1243 from April 26, 1990.

The pragmatic approach to different challenges that Romanian women face provides the Association with a large audience among women.

AFR has over 9350 members in Bucharest and in other 20 centres from all over the country. The Association does not charge fees; therefore, its funds come from donations, voluntary contributions of members, implementation of projects and programs and other various activities.

During its 12 years of existence, AFR - the initiator of the national women's movement - became a strong bridge among organizations, committees and associations that are active in the area of women's rights in Romania.

Between 1990 and 2002, AFR participated to several international events (conferences, seminars, symposiums, etc.), responding to invitations from other women organizations in England, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Czech Republic, China, Croatia, Cuba, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary Israel, Italy, Korea, Lithuania, Moldova, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slovacia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, Yugoslavia and U.S.A.

Many international delegations have visited AFR, such as: State Official Delegation from Belarus, Women associations and charities from Switzerland, an Italian civic organization, a German College organization, and other organizations from Bulgaria, Greece, The Netherlands, Yugoslavia, and U.S.A.

Since 1998, AFR has been a part of The Coalition for Reproductive Rights in Romania, and in 1999 is has been a founder of The Coalition for the Culture of Peace and Non-violence in Romania.

AFR is also part of the Federation for Peace and Cooperation in the Balkans (FEBANKO - Athens, 1996), of Karat –Coalition for Regional Action, formed of women NGOs from 13 Eastern and Central European countries (Warsaw - 1997) and of the UNESCO network for distance education "ALADIN - Network of networks" (Hamburg, 1998.)
