About a thousand people took part in the 2014 International Women's Day march in Sydney on March 8. The rights of women workers, single parents, migrant and refugee women and threats to the right to abortion were among the issues highlighted.
The organising committee raised as two central demands: "Stop Zoe's Law!" and "Equal pay now!"
""We are facing the biggest attack on our reproductive rights that this country has seen in recent history with the introduction of a foetal personhood law (titled "Zoe's Law") in NSW Parliament.
The bill has already passed the NSW Lower House and will come before the Upper House sometime after it resumes in March."
The committee urged women and their supporters to "come and show our representatives in Macquarie St that we will not accept this law, which will wind back women's rights in this state."
The march began at Sydney Town Hall Square and finished at Hyde Park, where there were stalls and entertainment.
