A project to build the number of women candidates at the 2016 local government elections.

The VLGA with the support of the Victorian Government, local governments and community organisations is aiming to build the numbers and diversity of women candidates in the October 2016 local government elections. 

There are many ways you can join us:

I'm a community member – Stand for election! Or you can #ask1woman to stand and support her campaign. 
I'm a Councillor – Your council can invite women leaders and members of your community to find out more about how council works, and then consider standing
I work at a Victorian council – You can use the Victorian Local Government Women’s Charter to support activities which inform women about opportunities in the 2016 elections
