Sarah Hanson-Young Professional Career

Hanson-Young worked as a bank teller in 2004. She worked as the Campaign Manager for South Australia and the Northern Territory for Amnesty International from 2004 until she was elected to parliament in 2008. She was pursuing a postgraduate law degree in 2006. Prior to entering politics, she worked as a media advisor to Mark Parnell (SA Greens) in the 2006 South Australian election and as a Justice for Refugees campaigner (SA). In the 2006 state election, Hanson-Young ran for the South Australian Legislative Council, finishing fourth on the Greens' ticket.

On June 18, 2009, Senate President Harry Reid ordered the removal of Hanson-two-year-old Young's daughter from the Senate chamber during a division. The rules of parliament at the time prohibited senators and members from bringing their children into the chamber. The public reaction was divided, sparking a debate about accommodating children and their careers in the workplace. Despite a seven-year delay, the incident directly resulted in a change in the rules of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, which now allow MPs and senators to care for their children in the chamber for short periods of time.

In October 2010, Hanson-Young ran against Christine Milne for the Green deputy leadership, but she was defeated. Hanson-Young criticized the Greens for siding with the minority Labor Gillard government and urged the party to negotiate with the Liberals. Milne, however, put a halt to these negotiations. Following the resignation of Australian Greens leader Bob Brown in 2012, she was nominated for the deputy leadership again, but lost to Adam Bandt by an unspecified margin. Hanson-Young was re-elected to the Senate in both the 2013 and 2016 federal elections. In the 2019 federal election, Hanson-Young won a second six-year Senate term, with her party receiving 10.9% of first preference votes and a 5.03-point swing in her favor.
