A group of professional women in Sydney headed out on a pink party bus today in an attempt to promote debate in the election campaign on issues of gender representation and equality.
The WomenVote initiative is founded by three legal professionals who say they are fed up with the status quo.
The group was joined on the ride by candidates for the seat of Wentworth in the city’s east.
