We welcome debate and conversation around our stories and in order to facilitate a community that keeps conversation useful, interesting and welcoming we have some guidelines for our commenting system.

We are committed to publishing comments quickly on our site in the interest of promoting a fast-paced and robust conversation. We ask in return that our readers behave respectfully to our commenting moderation.

We encourage readers to engage in spirited discussion but not to use that opportunity to show an undue level of discourtesy to another person. This includes deliberately antagonising other commenters, insulting authors or directing hatred toward public figures.

Women’s Agenda reserves the right to choose which comments we deem to be appropriate to be posted and discussed, and which are not. We reserve the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to the website, particularly those which are offensive, make personal attacks on another reader or could expose us to legal action. If you believe you have read an inappropriate or offensive comment please get in touch

We do not guarantee that any comment submitted by any reader will appear or remain on the Women’s Agenda website. We reserve the right at any time to restrict access to comments for users with a history of inappropriate behaviour, and the right to close conversations which descend into inappropriate discussion.

Opinions expressed in comments published on Women’s Agenda should not in any way be interpreted as a reflection or endorsement of the Women’s Agenda editorial team. They are the opinion of the author of the comment and not the wider organisation.

Please help us to keep the Women’s Agenda community respectful and appropriate. We prefer not to have to edit or delete comments on our website, so please help us uphold this code of conduct so we don’t have to.

WOMEN’S AGENDA | GENERAL COMPETITIONS – Terms and Conditions of entry

These General Competition Terms and Conditions apply to all competitions run by the Promoter. They may be amended or varied from time to time by the Promoter. Special Terms and Conditions may apply to particular contests in which case, the Special Terms and Conditions will be highlighted on the competition/promotion page.

The Promoter is Women’s Agenda. ABN +61 2 8231 6512. (“the Promoter”).


The only persons who may enter and be awarded prizes are Australian residents who are not employees of the Promoter or its related bodies corporate, or the immediate family of such employees. “Immediate family” means spouse, parent, child or sibling, whether or not they live in the same household as the employee.


By entering the competition, participants agree to be bound by these General Terms and Conditions and any Special Terms and Conditions appearing on the website specific to the particular competition.


Participants may only enter the competition once, unless the Special Terms and Conditions specify otherwise. Only the first received entry will be valid if more than one entry is received from a participant.


For competitions that are a game of skill: entrants are required to submit a creative answer to a question. Winners will be selected by a panel of representatives of the Promoter who, at their discretion, will select the best answer/s based upon originality, creativity, and adherence to the word limit. Chance plays no part in determining the winners.


All prizes must be taken as offered and are not exchangeable, transferable, redeemable for cash or for resale. In the event that a prize is unavailable, the Promoter reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. Prizes unclaimed after a period of one month from the date of notification of the winner may be forfeited and used by the Promoter at the discretion of the Promoter.

Prize collection method will be listed on the competition page. For certain competitions, prizes will be posted to the address nominated by the winner/s. No responsibility will be accepted by the Promoter for any lost or misdirected mail. For other competitions, prizes must be claimed in person unless the winner is otherwise advised. Photographic identification of the winner will be required (examples include drivers licence/passport/student card where photo included) to claim a prize.

In special situations, and subject to the absolute discretion of the Promoter, a winner may nominate a designated representative to collect a prize. The representative will be required to present written authorisation from the winner and photographic identification of both the winner and their representative.


Winners will be notified by email or mail (for prizes being sent direct to the nominated address).


All entries become the property of the Promoter. Entries not completed in accordance with the conditions of entry or received after the closing date will not be considered. Indecipherable or incomplete entries will be disregarded. No responsibility is taken for late or misdirected email.


The details contained in your entry are protected by security safeguards as detailed in the Promoter’s Privacy Policy, which is also available on this website. The personal information collected as part of the entry is collected to enable identification of the winner and for future marketing and promotional purposes. Your personal information will only be disclosed to the Promoter and its related bodies corporate for these purposes.


If for any reason a competition does not run for its duration due to a computer virus, tampering, unauthorised intervention, fraud, technical failures or any other cause beyond the control of the Promoter that corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the competition, the Promoter reserves the right in its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the competition or disqualify any individual who tampers with the entry process. The Promoter is not responsible for any:

(a) malfunction, delay or traffic congestion on any telephone network or line, computer on-line system, servers or providers, computer equipment, software, or website;

(b) failure of any email or entry to be received by the Promoter; nor

(c) any injury or damage to entrants or any other person related to or resulting from participation in the competition or down loading any materials in a competition.


The Promoter makes no representations or warranties as to the quality, suitability or merchantability of any goods or services offered as prizes. To the extent permitted by law, the Promoter is not liable for any loss suffered to person or property by reason of any act or omission, deliberate or negligent, by the Promoter or its employees or agents, in connection with the arrangement for the supply, or the supply, of goods and services by any person to the prize winner and, where applicable, to any persons accompanying the prize winner. This clause does not affect any rights a consumer may have which are unable to be excluded under Australian law. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any liability of the Promoter or its employees or agents for breach of any such rights is limited to the payment of the costs of having the prize supplied again.
