Women’s rights and wellbeing haven’t advanced over the last five budgets because there has been no concerted effort from this Government to deliver gender equality.
If Labor wins the next election, we must be ready from day one. That’s why Labor spent 2017 holding conversations with thousands of Australian women around the country and released Setting the Agenda: a National Strategy for Gender Equality, on International Women’s Day this year.
Labor will bring back the Women’s Budget Statement and put gender equality at the heart of our budgeting and policy development. We’ll make our budgets work for women.
