Scale of sexism and bad behaviour at local government level

Radio: New research shows scale of sexism and bad behaviour at local government level

Councillor Joanne McRae, the only female councillor on Orange City Council, is an alumnus of WOMEN FOR ELECTION. In this radio interview she speaks about the challenges she’s experienced and why she wants more women in council chambers across NSW.

It is crucial that we achieve equal representation in local government as it provides better policy decisions for our community and is often an entry point to state and federal parliament.

WOMEN FOR ELECTION is running 7 training workshops across NSW to INSPIRE and EQUIP women who want to stand in the NSW council elections in September.
