EMILY’s List Australia congratulates Ms Allan on her appointment as the 49th Premier of Victoria. Ms Allan is the second woman to lead the State of Victoria - 33 years after the late Joan Kirner became the first woman Premier of the state in 1990.

 

EMILY’s List CEO Pamela Anderson said Ms Allen’s appointment was a strong message to women that gender equality will keep moving forward in Victoria, “Joan’s (Joan Kirner) dream has always been to have more women in politics and especially as premier, Ms Anderson said. “Jacinta Allan is a foundation member of EMILYs list and a long-time supporter so we are thrilled that she takes on the top job as Premier of Victoria”.

 

Since EMILY's List Australia was launched in 1997, the organisation has advocated and fundraised to support progressive Labor women elected to Australian Parliaments.

 

Ms Anderson said outgoing Premier Daniel Andrews’ commitment to investing in and supporting Victorian women, especially in health, education and diversity was a legacy that would be continued and strengthened by Ms Allan.

 

“The Andrews Labor Government has made bigger and better inroads for the women of this state, starting with a gender-equal ministry since 2018,” Ms Anderson said.

 

“We thank Dan and his government for his commitment to making the lives of women better in Victoria and the community can be reassured that this will continue under the strong and experience leadership of Jacinta Allan.”

Vic Govt urged to embrace mandatory inclusionary zoning after providing ‘in principle’ support

Community Housing Industry Association Victoria has urged the State Government to embrace mandatory inclusionary zoning, after it supported the measure in its long-awaited response to a parliamentary homelessness inquiry. The government has provided ‘in principle’ support to the committee’s recommendation to investigate implementing mandatory inclusionary zoning, where a portion of new major housing developments must be social or affordable housing. However, the initiatives in the government’s specific response to this recommendation bear no resemblance to inclusionary zoning, and will not increase social housing supply in line with population growth. CHIA Vic chief executive Sarah Toohey has called on the Victorian…
