For the last 16 years, EMILY's List Australia has been supporting progressive women in Australian politics. Our candidates are pro-choice, pro-childcare, pro-diversity, pro-equality and pro-equal pay. Some of them include Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Health Minister Tanya Plibersek, Finance Minister Penny Wong, Premier Lara Giddings and Chief Minister Katy Gallagher.

On October 31, we woke up to find our Facebook page had disappeared. We have no idea why. We believe it is connected to an Op Ed we published in The Daily Telegraph the day before, and that anti-women activists have reported our page to Facebook untruthfully.

When women support women, women win. But to do the important job of getting progressive women elected to the House (and the Senate), we need our social media platform back.

We were just trying to #DestroyTheJoint - we didn't know they were going to Destroy our Facebook Page!

      Women will not simply be mainstreamed into the polluted stream. Women are changing the stream, making it clean and green and safe for all -- every gender, race, creed, sexual orientation, age, and ability.

      It's important to spread the message about Emily's list and to support women candidates for office

      I am a member of EMILY's List and know that it deserves to be able to use social media without wrongful censoring or hacking.

      women have a right to have their voices heard on every topic, and expressing all shades of opinion.

      Watch out: Hell has no fury like a woman scorned! This now has taken on a new meaning.

      Because it was women making comment on the future Governance of Australia and not anything sinister.

      This is a pro women group which has a long history. Its amazing that it has been removed when it is just supporting women!
