Government Democracy

Parliaments and local governments must reflect the gender mix of the communities they represent.


  • Gender balanced representation in all Local Governments and State and Federal Parliaments, including cabinets.
  • Political campaigns and policies reflect the needs of all genders equally.
  • Politicians are treated with equal respect in the media, and in Parliament regardless of gender.


  • All political parties set targets and quotas for candidate recruitment and pre selection.
  • All candidates are given equal campaign funding support by their parties.
  • Political campaigns are measured for their impact on gender equality.
  • Parliaments enforce respectful standards of behaviour.
  • Mandate that all Cabinets must contain a gender balance in line with the composition of the society they represent.
