January 20th 2019. We are the #WomensWave.
WE CALL UPON COMMUNITY AND POLITICAL LEADERS TO SUPPORT A SAFE STATE
“To harness the power of everyone present to change the culture of violence against women for the next generation.
Australia’s culture of violence against women is a crisis. It is rooted in a widespread cultural acceptance that the values, roles and rights of women are lesser than those of men. It is time to change this culture so that the next generation of women can live their lives to their fullest potential; free from intimidation, harassment and violence. Women have the right to be safe, claim their space, be respected and have their voices heard.”
5000 of you turned out to march. Thank you for standing in solidarity with us.
We thank our amazing speakers:
MC Yumi Stynes (Media personality and host of Is Australia Sexist?)
Aunty Norma (Indigenous community leader and activist)
Bhenji Ra (Trans artist-activist)
Jane Brock (Immigrant Women’s Speakout and 1 Billion Rising)
Bri Lee (Award winning author of Eggshell Skull)
