Welcome to the Women's Electoral Lobby!


The Women's Electoral Lobby is dedicated to creating a society where women’s participation and their ability to fulfil their potential are unrestricted, acknowledged and respected and where women and men share equally in society’s responsibilities and rewards. Over the past four decades, the Women’s Electoral Lobby has been a force to be reckoned with in Australian politics and we intend to remain so for many years to come.


We’ve been instrumental in the introduction of equal pay legislation; the drafting and implementation of state anti-discrimination and federal sex discrimination legislation; and rape law reform.

Despite these significant wins, there is still work to do. If you would like to be involved in changing Australian women’s lives for the better (and creating a bit of history) join us!
