Funded by the Federal Government Office for Women, Equality Rights Alliance is Australia’s largest network advocating for women’s equality, women’s leadership and recognition of women’s diversity.
We bring together 61 organisations with an interest in advancing women’s equality.
ERA started life as WomenSpeak, a national non-government network of women's organisations and women’s advocates which operated from 2001 to 2010.
Equality Rights Alliance is one of six National Women’s Alliances. We are funded by the Commonwealth Government’s Office for Women and are led by YWCA Australia
ERA believes the advancement of women and the achievement of equality are matters of fundamental human rights.
We advocate for gender equality, women’s leadership and government policy responses that support women’s diversity. Using a range of methods to consult and engage with women in Australia, ERA works to bring the voices of women from diverse life situations to policy makers.
