NB: NEW MEMBERS

ABC Friends WA welcomes new members to help us fight the good fight for the ABC.

We have received new membership payments from several people recently who have paid by direct credit to our bank account – but have not sent us their contact details.  This means that we do not know who they are and are unable to contact them.

If you wish to join, please check the information on our ‘Join Us’ page.  If you have made a payment but not sent an email with your details, please do so as soon as possible.

Margaret Reynolds
Margaret Reynolds has been pivotal in establishing ABC Friends as a national organisation, and her parliamentary experience, knowledge and contacts have been invaluable in our efforts to influence members of Parliament of all political persuasions to support a properly funded and independent ABC.
Margaret was elected as a federal Labor senator for Queensland in 1983.  Four years later she became the Minister for Local Government and, in 1988, the Minister assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women.  She was appointed to the Aboriginal Reconciliation Council and was directly involved in developing native title legislation following the Mabo decision. She remained in Parliament until 1999.
Margaret is the author of  two books, The Last Bastion, Labor women working towards equality in the parliaments of Australia (publ. 1995), and  Living Politics (publ. 2007).
