WED 4TH MARCH, 6-8PM, CIVIC PARK FOUNTAIN
A rally against domestic violence, and a vigil for Hannah Clarke, her children, and the eight other women murdered in Australia by their partner so far in 2020.

SPEAKERS, IN ORDER:

Wollongong, 1980: Denied jobs at the steelworks – the city’s main employer – working class / migrant women refused to accept discrimination. They began a campaign for the right to work that lasted for fourteen years. Their battle against BHP, the country’s richest and most powerful company, took them from factory gate to the highest court in the land and changed the rules for women throughout Australia.

On Saturday 7 March at 11am, we will be starting at Hyde Park fountain and marching to Belmore Park. There will be a few speeches held at the beginning of the event with further entertainment and food trucks at Belmore Park for the conclusion of the march.

Please note there will be an Auslan interpreter and we are working on some shading and seating for the elderly and people with mobility issues.

Come along and show your support for International Women's Day!!

March 4, 6pm. Point Danger, Anzac Drive, Torquay

Come find out in a COVID-safe tour, about Sydney's feminist history — the women, queers and the militant class struggle events excluded from the annals of public memory because they challenge the order of establishment patriarchal governments.

A feminist people's history walk, this expedition will stop at Aboriginal and women convict rebellion sites, locations of queer uprisings, migrant women uprising mementos and sites of women's literary and journalistic endeavours.

Spread the word–this year’s International Women’s Day rally will take place FRIDAY, 8 MARCH 2019 at 5:30PM at the STATE LIBRARY on Swanston Street. #IWD2019

2019 INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY MELBOURNE
POLITICAL DEMANDS

We demand:

Justice for First Nations peoples, Indigenous workers’ rights, and land rights

An end to all forms of violence against women and children

An end to all imperialist wars

An end to racism

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry reflects on the multi-layered strands of feminism in the US from the late 1960s through the mid 1970s.
It includes interviews with feminists from those times, and includes original footage of the battles that were waged.
In these times when women's rights are even more under attack from neoliberal governments here (and in the US) this film is a reminder of what the second wave of the women's movement achieved.

Unit 3, 29 Macquarie Street, Parramatta (5 minutes walk from the station).
