The Women's Party, officially registered as The Women's Party, was an Australian political party which was registered on 20 February 2019.[1] Its policies relate to women's rights, such as equal representation of women in parliament and equal pay. It also supports anti-corruption policies, the rights of First Nations and indigenous Australians, and action on climate change.[2][3] It was founded by transgender woman Divvi de Vendre, who was the party's lead candidate for the Senate in the 2019 federal election.[4][5]

The party was de-registered by the Australian Electoral Commission on the 11 of June 2021.[6]
