All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) is a left oriented women's organisation committed to achieving democracy, equality and women's emancipation in India. AIDWA membership comprises women of all strata of society but its main focus of attention is work among the poorer sections of women.

AIDWA was founded in 1981, as an all India organisation. However, several state units of the organisation had come into existence during the freedom struggle, dating back to pre-Independance days. AIDWA now has an organisational presence in 18 States in the country. AIDWA has an annual renewable membership. Its membership in 2001 was over 6 million.

AIDWA is part of the Jan Swasthya Abhiyan coalition.
