Our Impact

Since Fair Agenda launched our very first campaign in 2014, we've grown from a community of a few hundred, to 37,000 members - and shown that, together, we have the ability to influence issues affecting women on the national scale.

The Fair Agenda community has established ourselves as a powerful force for change - shaping the national media agenda on key issues, and helping change national policy outcomes.

You can read an overview of the Fair Agenda community's impact in our Impact Reports:

 

Some of the recent changes the Fair Agenda community has helped secure for women include:

  • Securing an additional $4 million of funding for domestic and sexual violence counselling service 1800 RESPECT,
  • Helping block cuts to working parents time to care for their newborns, that would have hurt 79,000 working families to date (you can read more about that here)
  • Driving pressure over multiple years to help secure an additional $150 million of federal funding for the services women rely on to escape abuse,
  • Working with partner organisations to help stop $34 million of cuts to Community Legal Centres - and the vital work they do for women and children affected by family violence.
  • Establishing the first public record of which university residences are providing training to prevent sexual violence (you can view the results of the residence training survey here)
  • Worked with partner organisations to secure a commitment to refer the criminalisation of abortion in Queensland to the Law Reform Commission; and to introduce legislation to implement their recommendations.
