The Division of Tangney is an Australian electoral division in the state of Western Australia. Eligible voters within the Division elect a single representative, known as the member for Tangney, to the Australian House of Representatives. The Division was named after Dame Dorothy Tangney, the first female member of the Australian Senate, and is at present a safe Liberal seat held by Dr Dennis Jensen, a physicist and defence analyst, since the retirement of high-profile former Attorney General Daryl Williams at the 2004 federal election.
