Abortion rights in Victoria are under threat. The Right to Life is organising a 'March for the Babies' on October 8, wanting to recriminalise abortion. This anti-choice mobilisation is to bolster reactionary efforts to establish the 'rights' of the foetus and wind back Victoria's 2008 reform, which decriminalised abortion. Pro-choicers will rally to make our message loud and clear: 'We won't go back! Full reproductive rights for all women now!'

Has sexism always existed? Is it genetic? What can we do about it? We will discuss all these questions and many more. Organised by Socialist Alliance. For more info ph 9639 8622.
