Her Place is partnering with EMILY’s List Australia to celebrate its 25 year history.

The exhibition tells the story of a ‘for women by women’ network that provides political, financial, and personal support to progressive Labor women candidates and politicians in Australia. It celebrates how positive change can be created when women take action.

Learn about affirmative action, the decriminalisation of abortion, and the many ‘firsts’ for women, including the election of First Nations women, state and territory leaders, and the first woman to be Prime Minister, the Hon Julia Gillard AC.

EMILY stands for Early Money is Like Yeast – it makes the dough rise!
