The Women's Parliament
In South Australia on 18 December 1894 women were granted the right to vote and stand for Parliament - this was the first legislation in the world of its kind. Despite its progressive history, South Australia has never had a woman Premier and women are under-represented in Parliament. The Women's Parliament will bring together women from all sectors to present an alternative political position and vision. The Women's Parliament will debate and discuss economics, legislation, business, export, education, health, human rights, Indigenous rights, arts & culture, social change, welfare - and the myriad of topics and decisions that are made at a Parliamentary level in South Australia. In the 21st century, what would a women's version of the future look like and how do we get there? It's time for change!
Women of South Australia, have your say about our political future at the inaugural Women's Parliament. It's easy, Submit an Issue at thewomensparliament.org and follow the link. Deadline for Issues is Thursday 7 September.
