The NSW parliament is still a long way from being truly representative of the community it serves. Despite increases over recent elections, women still only make up one third of NSW members of parliament.
Join us at our October Conversation Series event to hear from two women who have overcome the hurdles and been elected to the NSW Legislative Assembly.
Melinda Pavey is the Minister for Water, Property in Housing in the Berejiklian Government serving her second term as the Member for Oxley, representing the mid north coast of NSW. Previously she served 13 years in the NSW Legislative Council and her previous portfolios include Road, Maritime and Freight.
