Emily's List

EMILY is an acronym that stands for Early Money Is Like Yeast – it makes the dough rise.

Giving women candidates financial support early in their campaigns provides them with the foundations on which to build a successful campaign and attract more financial support.

WE ARE:

  • Australia’s only financial, political and personal network supporting progressive Labor women in politics.
  • A not for profit, membership-based organisation governed by a National Committee and run by a National Office.

WE AIM TO:

  • Increase the number of progressive women MPs in Australian state, territory and federal parliaments
  • Achieve a critical mass of EMILY’s List MPs committed to pursuing a progressive parliamentary agenda
  • Influence ALP policies relating to equity, diversity, choice, child care and equal pay
  • Ensure a pipeline of future women candidates by encouraging a diversity of women to consider a parliamentary career
