Over 300 people took part in the Brisbane/Meanjin International Women's Day rally and march at Emma Miller Place on March 10.
Speakers addressed issues including: women's rights at work, abortion rights; violence against women; justice for incarcerated women; justice for Aboriginal women (especially the case Ms Dhu); the inadequacies of family law; and the history of IWD.
The otherwise excellent rally was marred by a small group with transphobic signs (one of whom was invited onto the platform as an entertainer). A large number of rally participants responded by expressing their support for trans inclusion in various ways.
