Coatsworth joined the Labour Party in the 1980s during anti-mining campaigns in the Coromandel. Later, she was the Waikato-Bay of Plenty regional representative in Labour's New Zealand Council.
She has "absolutely no ambition" to be an MP.
On 26 November 2014, Coatsworth announced her intention to move forward her resignation as President to mid-December 2014, after completing the election in which Andrew Little was elected Party Leader, and starting the party's 2014 review. She stated that her reasons for leaving were that she wants "to see a new president working with Andrew as the new leader, really hitting the ground running at the beginning of next year and getting a plan in and getting moving." Nigel Haworth was elected as her successor.
