The Women's Electoral Lobby (WEL) NSW is an independent, feminist, non-profit, non-party political lobby group founded in 1972. Building on nearly 50 years of feminist advocacy work, WEL NSW seeks to give women a voice on critical issues including eliminating violence against women, reproductive rights, affordable housing, and financial security issues including equal pay. We lobby and campaign on state and federal issues.

We are always on the lookout for passionate feminists to join our team. Volunteers are at the heart of our organisation and we rely on the contribution of volunteers to carry out our work.
