There has never been a better time to be a Labor woman.
Julia Gillard is leading the way as our country’s first woman Prime Minister and with a dedicated team behind her we are seeing amazing inroads in achieving true equality for women.
The creation of a historic Paid Parental Scheme, changes to improve women’s retirement savings and replacing the draconian workplace laws with those which restore fairness to workers are all tangible examples of the ALP working towards improving women’s lives in Australia.
The National Labor Women's Network is the official body representing all women members of the Australian Labor Party.
The Network believes that encouraging women to participate in all levels of the Party's structure, the government and public life is the best way to achieve policy outcomes that reflect the needs of women in the Australian community.
We provide advice on policy issues at state and national levels, and represent the Australian Labor Party in international women's forums. We work with our state Labor women organisations to increase the number of women active in the Labor Party and support the development of skills that assist women to participate in the Party at all levels.
We sponsor training, mentoring and political work experiences, as well as organising informal social networking events.
Please contact a member of our Executive in your State to find out more about how you can become involved in the National Labor Women’s Network.
