The year is 2019 and after more than a century of progress, sexism is still rife in Australia.

We were the second country in the world to grant (at least some) women the right to vote in 1902, yet we make up barely a third of our federal parliament. Poor political representation has real-life effects, with women killed by the dozens in their own homes while our Prime Minister takes six months to even mention the issue.

It’s clear that women have the right to be free from violence and harassment, and should have the freedom to choose what to do with their bodies. So how do we build on the achievements of generations of campaigners for equality to make sure all women are safe, valued and treated as equals in private and public life, regardless of their background, ethnicity, religion, disability and sexual identity?

Join us for a relaxed evening of conversations to learn how women from all walks of life are working in the Sunshine Coast to bring about lasting change. Enjoy drinks and light snacks in the beautiful Lakeview room with Senator Larissa Waters, as well as local frontline workers, young advocates, and teacher and Greens candidate for Fisher Tracy Burton.

The Greens are committed to achieving equality for all women, including through housing, financial, and workplace security. We are working to put in place legal, workplace and economic reforms that directly address the key causes of inequality for women in Australia and globally. We want to involve the community so our campaign for better politics is driven by the needs and aspirations of people who live here.
