The Women's Electoral Party (WEL) is a lobby group founded in 1972. Originally aimed at publicising the women's issues policies of the election candidates, it has grown to advocate and achieve policy changes such as equal pay legislation, anti-sex discrimination legislation and rape law reform.

The Library has a growing collection of badges related to Australian women that have been donated by a number of Library members and supporters.

The badges in our diverse collection have been generated by campaigns such as that against sexism, sexual harassment, war, nuclear energy and abortion laws. Others promote and celebrate working mothers, peace, International Women's Day and feminist values. Women's groups are well represented, although few political party badges have been collected. We do, however, have a badge from Jessie Street's campaign as the Labor candidate for the seat of Wentworth in 1943.
