ALGWA SA Regional Information Sessions for Women Candidates

Cr Betty Gill, President of the Australian Local Government Women’s Association South Australian (ALGWA SA ) said” Our organisation wants to encourage more women to run and be successful in getting elected in the November 2014 Local Government Elections.”

Cr Gill said despite that fact that women make up more than half the population, just over a quarter (27%) of South Australian councillors are women after the 2010 elections. Of those, 32% of metropolitan Council Members are women and 24% of rural Council Members are women. There are six rural councils with no women councillors.

To encourage more women to stand, ALGWA SA held free Regional Information Sessions at Prospect, Marion, Charles Sturt, Murray Bridge, Whyalla and Port Adelaide Enfield:

Women participants at the information sessions received ALGWA SA’s free resource, Getting Elected-Women Can.
