Women’s Rights

Socialist Alliance is proud to gather with fellow feminists to Reclaim the Night around Australia in 2013.

This updated resolution was adopted by the Socialist Alliance National Council on October 4.

Socialist Alliance is running in the Queensland elections to help build an anti-capitalist current in Queensland and national politics.

Far from being too radical, Labor’s shift to the left was too little too late, incomplete and sometimes more rhetoric than substance.

Indian feminist and socialist Kavita Krishnan was the keynote speaker at the People's Power in the “Asian Century” seminar in Sydney on June 7. The seminar was held as part of the Socialist Alliance’s 10th national conference over the weekend of June 7-9.

MHS is currently “triaging” already vulnerable callers. This means that those who have made the difficult decision to get help are being made to tell their whole story before they can be put through to a specialist counsellor, to then re-live the gut-wrenching memory again.

The Socialist Alliance will contest the 2019 NSW State Election to put people in control of planning and to build community resistance to corporate greed.

As essential steps towards complete gender equality, the Socialist Alliance campaigns for:

Equality and justice in the workplace
  1. Real equal pay for work of equal or comparable value.
  2. Automatic wage indexation that corresponds to real cost-of-living increases.
  3. Increase the minimum wage to enough to support a family.
  4. Abolish the youth wage because it damages the wellbeing of young women, and especially that of young mothers and their children.

A casino was a fitting venue to host Prime Minister Tony Abbott's keynote address to the 25th anniversary dinner of conservative think tank the Sydney Institute on April 28.

This International Women's Day falls at a time when the environmental and economic crises of global capitalism are making life even harder for most women and the communities they live and work in.

Capitalism's crisis is hitting hard in the US and across Europe. It is particularly dire in Greece where school teachers and other essential service workers are being thrown out of work or being forced to take pay cuts of between 40-50%. Working-class women are being hit especially hard.

Safe access zones alone will not be enough to improve access to abortion, while the procedure remains in the criminal codes of those states and generally inaccessible through the public hospital system.

Radical Ideas is a conference for young people who are looking to build the politics of an alternative. It is a weekend of discussion and debate on how young people can best organise to build a new politics for radically more democratic, equal and just future.
