Panellists' commentaries will be published here on the 4th and 18th of each month until close to the election date.
Each of the Panellists will offer their commentaries on a range of areas and may also comment on each other's commentaries.
CLW will not be editing any of the commentaries and welcomes in the spirit of feminist exploration all viewpoints and critiques from the Panellists.
To cover a broad range of areas, CLW invited women from many other organisations. Unfortunately not all of them were able to accept the invitation. CLW also sent invitation to all federal women politicians to join the Panel.
The existing Panel members are leaders in their own right and in the organisations they lead. Their state and national organisations support and listen to women from diverse backgrounds and provide valuable input to political leaders and policy makers. CLW is extremely proud to have these women leaders on this Panel.
I hope you find the Panel a worthwhile source of information, debate and exploration of key issues impacting on women as you decide your vote in the next election.
