Women Should Be Two Things : Who She Wants and What She Wants.

There is no doubt the ground swell of female voices stepping forward to contribute ideas and innovation is growing.  No longer are women prepared to be silenced, stay silent or remain quiet when the systems and rules fail to take into consideration the issues and concerns of women and girls. 

This is the first in a series of interviews with women who have stepped into roles of representation at Local, State and Federal Government. 

Today I am speaking with Cr Laura Cowell, of Ward E, who as a local resident in the Sutherland Shire openly shares why she believed she was the right person for a seat on Council.  Laura shares her experience and commitment to creating a safer, equal and well serviced sector of the local government.  

Representing her community, residents and sporting arenas, Laura says the role was a steep learning curve that she is quickly embracing so she can make a difference in the next 2 years and 9 months.
