The Victorian Labor Women’s Network

Victorian Labor Women's Network

The Victorian Labor Women’s Network (VLWN) is the official Victorian women’s network in the ALP. The VLWN believes that encouraging women to participate in all levels of the Party’s structure, government and public life is the best way to achieve policy outcomes that reflect the needs of women in the Australian community.

The VLWN provides a forum and stages events to increase the number of women active in the Labor Party. This facilitates and strengthens relationships between state Labor women organisations and the National Labor Women’s Network, as well as supporting the development of skills that assist women to participate in the ALP at all levels.

ALP Members:

All women who are ALP members are automatically a member of the Victorian Labor Women’s Network.
