Sobre mí

What Women Want (Australia) is the only political party dedicated to advancing issues affecting Australian women. We want our parliaments to be more representative.

We believe that the male domination of politics limits and negatively impacts on decisions and policies.

What Women Want (Australia) will dedicate its work to giving women more of a say in the direction of our country and the important policies that shape it.

The work of What Women Want (Australia) will not exclude men, as we know that they play an important role in many women’s lives.

What Women Want (Australia) simply wants to promote greater participation from women of all ages. We believe that everyone in our society will benefit from that.

Decisions and policies made by government affect women’s health and well-being. They also affect the lives of others, particularly that of their partners and children. We believe that with more women in Parliament these decisions would be more ‘woman and family friendly’.

Policies would have the ‘stamp of practicality’ from women who are ‘walking the talk.’ Women who understood how hard it is to juggle work and family and how good it is when as a woman you are supported.

Cómo iniciar un partido de mujeres

Voz de la comunidad destacada: What Women Want (Australia)

Justine Caines es la fundadora y líder del primer partido político femenino australiano: What Women Want (Australia). Creado para reformar la atención sanitaria durante el parto y la maternidad, el partido presentó 18 candidatas para las elecciones de 2007 y obtuvo 60.000 votos. Aunque no ganaron, se sintieron satisfechas con los resultados. Hoy, se preparan para las próximas elecciones trabajando en proyectos que promueven los derechos de las mujeres. Ya han tenido éxito: después de nueve años de campaña, el gobierno australiano el mes pasado aceptó considerar subvencionar a las parteras.
