The acronym "Emily" stands for Early Money Is Like Yeast. First established in the United States, Emily's List is a feminist organisation which raises money to have pro-abortion women elected to parliament. It functions within the Democratic Party in the US and the ALP in Australia.
In Australia, Emily's List was founded by two former Labor premiers, Joan Kirner (Victoria) and Carmen Lawrence (Western Australia). It claims to have 3,000 members and to have helped 115 women into state and federal parliaments.
Kath Woolf, spokesman for the Australian Federation of Right to Life Associations says: "A core strength in the pro-abortion ranks are those who are supported in their career by Emily's List. The List supports Labor 'pro-choice' women from pre-selection right through; (once) in power, these successful candidates owe allegiance to this agenda.
