On Thursday, 18th July 2013, the National Women’s Alliances have launched womenvote.org.au urging women to “Use their Vote”.
“womenvote.org.au highlights the democratic importance of women casting a vote that reflects their experiences and beliefs. The site will also provide links to party policies, to the ABC’s Vote Compass and to various other political spectrum tools so that women can easily engage with the campaigns leading up to the election. By doing this, the National Women’s Alliances are placing policy front and centre for women when they cast their vote.” Sally Jope, Policy Advisor with economic Security4Women said.
Why should we vote ?
Why would you bother?
After all, one vote can’t do much, can it?

Our vote needs to be effective, informed, and independent. We need to make our own choices. www.womenvote.org.au can help us cast an effective and informed ballot.
womenvote.org.au is also interactive and participatory. “We want women to take a photo of themselves with our Women! Use Your Vote poster and upload it to Facebook or Twitter so we can create a collage of women who will be using their vote this election. Like democracy, the more women participating in this project, the better!”
