The GWUN sisters warmly invite you to our on-line forum on the impacts of the global pandemic on working women.

A lot of us expect to come under housing stress in September/October. We have under 7 weeks before the eviction moratorium ends, with JobSeeker & JobKeeper set to be reduced at the same time, many of us will not be able to pay our rent. This is a public forum to try and address the situation as a community, come along! For a variety of reasons, we expect a lot of evictions at the end of September unless we can act to stop them.

Speakers include:
