Congratulations Tasmania on electing a majority female Parliament

23 Mar 2018 4:20 PM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

Tasmania elected the first female-majority Australian state parliament on 3 March 2018, with 13 women and 12 men elected to the House of Assembly. The Australian Capital Territory had the first majority female parliament in Australia after its 2016 election.

Tasmania’s Parliament has 52% women: 2 Green MPs and 7 of 10 Labor MPs, but only 4 of 13 Liberal MPs. 

The South Australian election returned 29% women in the House of Assembly with 3 women in the 14 member Cabinet. The Liberals have 4 women out of 25 MPs (16%) and Labor has 7 women out of 19 MPs (36%).

Labor has a policy of assertively encouraging gender balance which is clearly achieving results.
