Natalie Lang | For Making a Feminist Difference in Workforce

Natalie Lang is the Secretary of the Australian Services Union NSW and ACT (Services) Branch and led the ‘We Won’t Wait’ campaign arguing for 10 days paid domestic and family violence leave for all workers in Australia.

As a committed and principled feminist Natalie worked collaboratively and consultatively with feminist women’s services, front line domestic and family violence workers and women with lived experience of domestic and family violence.

She has been tenacious, persistent and strategic to ensure the success of this campaign, motivated by her strong belief that paid domestic and family violence leave for workers was essential to making women and their children safer.

A bill to legislate 10 days paid domestic violence leave was introduced by the Federal Government on 28 July 2022, it became law on 27 October 2022.
