International Women's Day rally.
Friday March 8, 5.30pm, Murray St mall (outside Perth underground train station).

2012 saw an upsurge of feminist activism, with women in India leading the international struggle against sexual violence. Let us build on this momentum and come together to demand:

* self determination for indigenous women and their communities
* reverse the cuts to sole parents' payments
* close the gender pay gap - support the nurses' pay campaign
* stop violence against women - guarantee funding for women's refuges

and much, much more.
