What is The Women’s Parliament

The Women’s Parliament brings together women from diverse backgrounds and sectors to discuss ideas, develop an alternative political vision and implement an agenda for change.

The motivation for the event is to deliver a series of outcomes and actions in the lead up to the 2018 South Australian State election that could provide solutions to South Australia’s current challenges. It aims to harness the power of bringing women in a room together to problem solve and also come up with innovative and ambitious new ideas.

It will bring together independent voices from across South Australia.
