EMILY Award

The EMILY award is reserved for individual women who have shown exceptional courage, determination, innovation and commitment to issues, reforms and practices that promote and progress women’s position in Australian society. Such a recipient may have also increased access to important and often essential services that women may require, desire or need.

The winner of the EMILY Award will:

• be an EMILY’s list volunteer who has made a major ongoing contribution to the promotion of the EMILY’s List principles of choice, equity, childcare, equal pay and diversity.

Winners cannot be a current member of EMILY’s List’s national committee, as this committee decides the award recipient/s.
