Dr Kate Ahmad and Anita Hutchison delivered a historic petition to federal parliament on 15th of March, with 100,000 plus signatures demanding Christian Porter stand down pending investigation into his suitability for the role of Attorney General. They joined hundreds of thousands of protesters across the country demanding safe workplaces for women and male accountability for sexual harassment and assault.
Both doctors spent time, amongst their fellow protesters, conducting interviews with the media and spreading the word about the demands of the March4justice (now rebranded Women’s Justice Movement). Drs’ Ahmad, Hutchison and Karen Williams culminated the day in a private meeting with MP, Tanya Plibersek.
Several plans are coming up for the Women’s Justice Movement and DAVTW.
On Monday 29/3/21, Dr Anita Hutchison is presenting at the NSW government inquiry into the criminalisation of coercive control. Dr Nithya Reddy will be presenting on Tuesday.
On Wednesday 31/3, it is the Trans Day of Visibility. Christian Porter is also returning to work WITHOUT FACING ANY ACCOUNTABILITY, so we are calling protesters to wear red arm bands and feminist regalia, sharing with the hashtags #wearestillhere and #justiceforKate.
