- Social action organisation
The Women's Electoral Lobby (WEL.) first formed in Victoria, 1972. Conducted on a voluntary, non-profit basis, the W.E.L is a political pressure group that seeks to remove the economic and social disadvantages of women in Australia, to end discrimination against women and to promote equal opportunity. The W.E.L was constituted with a double purpose - to carry to the elected representatives of the community the views and requirements of female electors and to inform those female electors about their representatives' standard of consciousness of women's issues.
