At our inaugural HerVote event, female candidates and MPs talked quotas, ladders, and the value of stepping up.

They sit at opposite ends of the political spectrum, but Labor’s Tanya Plibersek and Liberal Sussan Ley agree on at least one thing: quotas.

The MPs called for a commitment to equal representation in parliament during Future Women’s inaugural HerVote event in Sydney tonight. As budget week came to a close, more than 150 women gathered in Darlinghurst to hear from emerging candidates and leading female politicians ahead of the Federal election.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
