Key Priorities for the 2022 Federal Election

With the announcement of its key priorities for the 2022 Federal Election, AGEC is demanding women remain a priority for the future Government.

“Despite two years of demonstrating, lobbying, and providing evidence-based solutions to government, we are yet to see the development of a comprehensive National Gender Equality Strategy that addresses the complex systemic changes required to improve the lives of Australian women,”
Coral Ross AM, Chair Australian Gender Equality Council.
