1) Sports Party candidate questioned on inappropriate facebook content

After more than 450 Fair Agenda members took action in our Sports Party campaign, the story got picked up by 6 different news outlets, including: the ABC, Daily Life and Triple J news.

Then, lead candidate Wayne Dropulich was asked in an interview with Radio National to explain why he thought that their actions were appropriate. You can hear the highlights from that interview in this recording, from 16:00.

 

2) 'Where do the parties stand?' scorecard shared with 2,000 people before the election

Off the back of the Sports Party’s facebook post, Fair Agenda asked representatives from the parties running in the WA election to declare their positions on the key issues that matter most to Fair Agenda members. We asked where they'd stand on specific questions we expect the new Senate will be required to vote on.

Thanks to pressure from Fair Agenda members, we were able to secure responses from 9 of the candidates.

We presented their responses in a scorecard that was shared with more than 2,000 people on Facebook. You can see the scorecard, and the parties’ extended responses, here.

We’ve tallied the results, and are excited to share our members top three priorities for 2014. They are:

1) Representation of women: particularly the presence of women in decision making roles in politics and business, as well as in media and sports coverage.

2) Reducing violence

3) Pay equality: economic inequality and issues affecting women in the workplace were raised across most Agenda Setters, with pay equality coming out as the top priority. 

4) Reproductive rights

5) Sexism

Of course, just because an issue isn’t included in this list, doesn’t mean that we won’t campaign on it. Dozens of really important issues were raised across the Agenda Setters. We've reflected on all of these to help get a full picture of what matters to our supporters, and we'll use this information to help us assess and shape our campaigns moving forward.

Our list of member priorities will be used, alongside advice from policy experts, to shape where we focus our campaign resources in 2014. 

Thanks so much for sharing your priorities with us. We can't wait to start campaigning on these important issues!
