About Fair Agenda

Fair Agenda is a community of 37,000 Australians campaigning for a fair and equal future for women.

We are an independent organisation made up of Australians from all backgrounds and walks of life, who use our collective people power to win change on a number of different issues that affect women.

Fair Agenda members take action on the women's rights issues that are important to them. Whether championing measures to address gendered violence, protecting reproductive rights, or campaigning for women's economic equality - our movement exists to demand better from our political representatives, business leaders, peers and the media.

We take strategic actions in critical moments - using petitions to capture community support, meeting with and contacting decision-makers, making headlines, amplifying the voices of experts and survivor advocates, and using our consumer power to affect positive change. 

Things have come a long way, but women still face barriers to getting a fair go. Even with a few recent high-profile cracks in the glass ceiling, women are still dramatically under-represented in decision-making roles across politics, business and the media, rates of gender-based violence remain shockingly high, and Australian women continue to face barriers in being paid equally for our work.

Fair Agenda focuses on the issue priorities set by our members. Those top three priorities are:

  • Addressing gendered violence,
  • Improving women’s representation (for example, in decision-making roles), and
  • Protecting reproductive rights

In the past few years our community has: helped win $100 million of additional funding to address family violence; stopped cuts to working parents' time to care for their newborns from hurting 79,000 families; helped stop cuts to Community Legal Centres' work for women affected by family violence; and secured improvements to sexual violence prevention and universities.

The more people get involved, the more impact our community can have - so please get involved in our campaigns, and sign up as a member here.

There's no fee to get involved. The Fair Agenda team will gets in touch with you from time to time about opportunities to drive change, and you'll have the chance to opt-in or out of the actions and issues that resonate with you.

As an independent non-profit organisation, Fair Agenda relies on the financial support of members to operate. Fair Agenda does not accept donations that would compromise our independence, such as government funding or donations from political parties. If you’d like to support our work, you can do so here.
