Sex Discrimination Act

Thousands of people gathered around Australia on November 15 to hear the results of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

While the survey delivered the result that was hoped for by these crowds, there has been a growing awareness that a majority Yes response in the survey does not necessarily deliver an easy pathway to the legislation that would deliver marriage equality. Instead, a new battle is looming, to win not just the legislation that a clear majority of Australians support, but to defend anti-discrimination protections for LGBTI people.

Dozens of people protested in Bendigo on February 26 for the right to breast feed in public.

A Bendigo mother had earlier been forced to leave a shopping centre food court after someone complained to a plaza employee. While Luci White initially held her ground, when a worker asked her to relocate to the centre's “specialised feeding facility”, she said she felt she had no choice but to comply with the demand.
