Recognising Women

Recognising Women

With International Women’s day in March I took the opportunity to recognise in Parliament the contribution of local women to the Sydney community.

You can read my community recognition statements for local women Carole Twist: > HERE, Mary Mortimer: > HERE and Sydney Electorate 2021 Woman of the Year Elizabeth Elenius: > HERE.   

I also recognised the much-needed and inspiring efforts of March 4 Justice to stop violence against women: > HERE and Women’s Electoral Lobby’s work to further equality for women: > HERE.  

Following the massive community campaigns on sexual violence and harassment, I’ve also lodged questions in Parliament on reform of consent and relationship education: > HERE, implementation of the Australian Human Rights Commission report on sexual harassment in workplaces:> HERE and measures to prevent traumatisation of sexual assault victim-survivors during trials: > HERE.   

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
