“When women are in Parliament, Parliament works for women. But in order to create real change for all women we must do more to support women of colour, LGBTI women and women with disabilities to take on leadership roles in our movement and in a future Labor Government. Our policies, programs and events need to take in to account these crucial intersections to build a movement that truly recognises unity, stands for diversity, and leaves no woman behind.”
