First ever research available on the impact of our federal MPs for Australian women
Increasing the number of women in Australian parliaments is one thing; measuring their collective impact for Australian women is another.
This year, for the first time, EMILY's List Australia is able to report on the very significant impact that a critical mass of women in parliament can have on the legislative agenda.
The research, released to coincide with International Women's Day, identifies some 35 pieces of legislation passed during the Rudd-Gillard years, which benefited women.
From financial assistance for working and studying women using child care to protecting women and children from family violence, the legislative achievements for women during this period are nothing short of extraordinary.
