Making Women Count by Marian Sawer

Book Description

In 1972 the Women's Electoral Lobby changed the political agenda forever. Australian political parties began producing women's policies, equal employment acts were passed, women's policy units were set up in government and women's services were funded. It became legal to advertise contraceptives and women became entitled to the minimum wage. This ambitious history explores the effect of WEL both on politics and on the lives of women who discovered the power of sisterhood.
