Labor Women's Network
Labor Women’s Forum
Do you share our aspiration of better outcomes for women? Do you want to get more involved in NSW Labor and the political process, but you're not sure how to go about it?
The NSW Labor Women's Forum is your answer.
NSW Labor is committed to assisting women from all backgrounds to become more active in political life and providing a focus on how government policies affect women.
We want your help in increasing the participation and membership in all levels of the Labor Movement.
Join the NSW Labor Women’s Forum to network with like-minded Women at social events and training workshops. Be part of our proactive approach in transferring skills and providing support to all women within NSW Labor.
The Labor Women’s Network is always active and planning upcoming events. Some of the great highlights over the last few years include:
- Party training and public speaking seminars in Parramatta, the Illawarra, the Central Coast and Queanbeyan;
- Labor Women’s Forum networking breakfast; and
- Christmas drinks held in conjunction with the Young Labor Women’s Network.

The Young Labor Women's Network believes the future looks bright for young women in politics. The Labor Government has successfully delivered Australia's first female Prime Minister and Australia's first female Governor-General. Looking to our states, we see Premier Anna Bligh as Australia’s first female to be elected as Premier and in NSW we have our first female Premier Kristina Keneally and Deputy Premier Carmel Tebbutt under Labor Governments. For women, it is an acknowledgement of what we have been saying for centuries.
Women are up to the task and can tackle political life like the best of them. The representation of women in Cabinet, ministries or as parliamentary secretaries ensures that women are able to bring something different to the governing table.
But there is still more to do. Young Labor aims to work towards a positive future for all women in all walks in life such as politics, business and the community.
The YLWN involves itself in the annual International Women’s Day celebrations, as part of the global campaign for equal rights. We have also participated in the “Womens Rights at Work” campaign Fair Wear campaign and have worked with numerous women's groups in the community.
