Politicians call out sexism on International Womens’ Day | SBS News

Next week, Women for Election Australia will be in Canberra meeting with 10 cross-party women MPs and Senators who’ve agreed to collaborate to initiate a Parliamentary Friends group of Women for Election Australia.

This bi-partisan message from Lidia ThorpeDr Helen HainesJane Hume and Tanya Plibersek on life and sexism in the #CanberraBubble and their take on how it can be fixed is worth watching.

One way to make our Parliaments less of a bear pit is to reduce the number of bears.
