Geelong Women Unionists Network organised an International Working Women's Day march on March 6.

About 100 unionists and activists marched from Geelong Trades Hall to Liberal Senator Sarah Henderson's office to condemn the federal government's anti-union omnibus bill, which unionists say will disproportionately impact women workers.

They also criticised the government's lack of action in dealing with allegations of sexual assault.
