If you’re looking to make a difference in the lives of women by advocating directly to parliamentarians, then this kit is for you. The advice and information you’ll find here is drawn from the wisdom and experiences of parliamentarians and advocates. This is a collection of practical tips and policy building advice that will help you shape policy for the better.
This toolkit was prepared by Joanna Richards, a PhD student at the University of Canberra. Joanna Richards prepared the kit while seconded to the office of Andrew Leigh MP.
