Where we've come from

The previous partnership project funded by the Victorian Government, Think women for local government 2012, achieved increases in the number of both women candidates and elected women.

Average numbers of women councillors increased from below 30 percent to 34 percent.

This was the first time that every Victorian is represented by a local government with at least one woman councillor.
