'EMILY' is an acronym which stands for 'Early Money Is Like Yeast' – it makes the dough rise. Giving progressive Labor women candidates financial support early in their election campaigns provides them with the foundation on which to build their success.

Our members pursue equity, diversity, choice, child care and equal pay. We advocate in Australian parliaments, campaign to change ALP policies, and develop a pipeline of future women candidates by encouraging Indigenous and young women to consider a parliamentary career. 

We are not for profit and are driven by our members, so join us today to be a part of the movement towards gender equity.
