"They've been labelled the "teal independents" — a group of mostly female candidates taking on mostly male Liberal MPs in some of Australia's wealthiest electorates, spanning the country from Perth and Adelaide to Sydney, Melbourne and parts of regional Victoria.

With millions of dollars in funding behind them from small donors and from the Climate 200 group set up by clean energy investor and son of Australia's first billionaire Simon Holmes à Court, their campaigns are making many in the Liberal Party nervous, with polls suggesting a close-run election.
