The Federal Election date has been announced.  Visit womenvote.org.au to make an informed decision.  The website:

  • encourages women to enrol to vote;
  • highlights barriers to enrolment and awareness of how to vote (elector education);
  • encourages women to make an informed and independent decision when they vote
The Alliances will also advocate for government to adopt a gender impact assessment (lens) at the earliest stages of all policy development to better ensure that it responds to women’s needs and rights.

Gender-sensitive policy-making: Applying a gender lens to the work of the Australian Government

Over the past three years, economic Security4Women has concentrated our attention on three key areas of concern to women:
 
  • Gender equity in the workplace including decent work
  • The care economy
  • Education, training and career pathways for women and girls
 
We have commissioned and produced research to fill gaps in knowledge; we have held forums and engaged with our member organisations, individual women and external stakeholders and we have had meetings with members of both the public service and the government. We have documented the results of this activity and now offer it to you to inform your current and future decision making in these areas.
 
Our main concern, and one that we share with our sister alliances, is that it becomes a matter of common practice for all levels of government in Australia to apply a gender lens to their work. In doing so, the impact of policies and programs would not disadvantage any person because of their gender.
 
We will be seeking meetings with government in the new year to discuss our work and our plans for the future.

The National Federation for Australian Women (NFAW) has released a comparative analysis of the policies of the major parties relating to women in the workforce and workforce attachment to help women make a well-informed decision in the 2013 election. A copy of the Workforce attachment policies can be found here.
 
The review outlines the policy differentiation across a range of portfolios of the Labor, Coalition and where possible, the Australian Greens.
 
It compares and contrasts the different policies on the issues of:
