Barbara Pocock

Lead Senate Candidate

Hi, I’m Barbara.

I'm running for the Senate because, like most Australians, I want to see real action on the climate crisis.

I’m an economist and Emeritus Professor. I grew up on a mallee farm near Lameroo and have worked in universities, shearing sheds, the Reserve Bank, on farms, in unions, for the government and as a mother and carer.

I've spent my life fighting for the rights of women. As an Emeritus Professor at UniSA, I led a team of researchers studying how work affects women, men, children and the households and communities in which we live. Now more than ever we need more women in our parliament to stand up for important issues such as women's safety, closing the gender pay gap, childcare and so much more that affects the daily lives of women across the country.

At the last election the Greens doubled our vote here in SA and this time we can double our representation by electing another strong woman to the Senate alongside Sarah Hanson-Young.

This election, join me to fight for our future.
