Political Parties and Groups in South Australia

South Australia was one of the first places in the world to give women the vote in 1894, and was the first in the world to enable women to enter Parliament. For more on this see the Women and Politics site from the State Library of South Australia.

The state has produced a diverse range of politicians from both sides of politics including Don Dunstan, Julia Gillard, Penny Wong, and Christopher Pyne, Amanda Vanstone and the Downers.
