UPDATE 30/11/2021: Today, Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins released the report sparked by Brittany Higgin’s allegations of sexual assault. The report is damming – it reveals that 1 in 3 people working in Parliament have experienced sexual harassment. It’s clear, now more than ever, that the government needs to listen

In 2021, women across Australia, including victim survivors of violence, have called for the government to take action to end gender-based violence

They’ve spoken out about their experiences of violence in school, in Parliament House, in their own homes. But the Morrison’s government has not listened to these women, or to women’s rights organisations, calling for his government to take action.  

They’ve called for his government to fund primary prevention services to stop violence before it begins, specialist services to support victim survivors, and more.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have called for a dedicated National Safety Plan led by and for First Nations women. 

First Nations women have the solutions to end violence but the Australian government haven’t listened to them, and that means that communities continue to suffer from disproportionate rates of violence.

Together, we can create a future where everyone is safe; in Parliament, in school, in the workplace, and in the home.

Email the government today and call on them to commit to end gender-based violence today.
