EQUALITY FOR ALL
The recent national debate over the toxic culture in Parliament reinforces how far we still have to go to achieve full gender equality. Melburnians have shown up in their numbers and have marched the streets demanding better from those in charge – and if we use this moment of national focus, this decade can see big steps towards equality.
Despite decades of progress towards equality, many women still experience sexism and discrimination at work, home and in the community. The Greens want all women to be safe, valued, believed, and treated as equals in private and public life, regardless of their background, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender identity or sexuality. Women have the right to be free from violence and harassment and should have the freedom to choose what to do with their bodies.
We also acknowledge that transgender women and gender-diverse people often experience compounded sexism and discrimination.
We will fight for equality for all and an end to all forms of discrimination against LGBTIQ+ people.
The Greens are committed to achieving equality for all women, including through housing, financial, and workplace security. We will put in place legal, workplace and economic reforms that directly address the key causes of inequality for women in Australia and globally.
