Feminism at the Hall

We dive into the issues impacting women workers at our Feminism at the Hall events. 

In November as part of the #16Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence, activist women discussed the work of eliminating gender-based violence in our workplaces and communities at “Comrades & Commissioners” – a Feminism at the Hall Event

The evening brought together more than a hundred feminist activists with Micaela Cronin, Federal Commissioner for Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence, Dr. Niki Vincent, Victorian Public Sector Gender Equality Commissioner, and Ro Allen, Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner. We heard about their roles and responsibilities in ending gender inequality and gender based violence.

This 16 Days Feminism at the Hall event was the last of 2023. Earlier, we held an event with the ACTU, Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA, Ethical Clothing Australia and Action Aid to commemorate 10 years since the Rana Plaza building collapse that killed more than 1100 mostly women garment workers and discuss how collectively we can fight for garment worker safety in Australia and internationally through international solidarity and supply chain organising. During WRAW Fest, our Feminism at the Hall event focused on ending the misuse of NDAs.
