Women’s Rights

Kavita Krishnan has become a well-known international spokesperson for the movement against sexual violence in India that grew after an horrific, internationally-publicised, gang rape of a student in Delhi in 2012.

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.

One of the international guests at the coming 10th national conference of the Socialist Alliance, to be held in Sydney June 7-9, 2014, will be Farooq Tariq, the general secretary of the Awami Workers Party in Pakistan.

Indian socialist and feminist, Kavita Krishnan will be one of the international guests from the Asia-Pacific region at the 10th national conference of the Socialist Alliance, to be held in Sydney over the long weekend of June 7-9.

The March in March protests across Australia over March 15-17 were a resounding success – not just because of their size, focus and breadth.

The wage gap between women and men is increasing, the number of women in poverty is growing, women’s reproductive rights are under attack, violence against women is on the increase, there is no marriage equality for LGBTIQ people and gender discrimination is rife.

Tens of thousands of people gathered at vigils around Australia over the weekend of February 22 to 23 to protest the brutal killing of asylum seeker Reza Berati inside the Manus Island detention camp in Papua New Guinea.

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

The Socialist Alliance says: Bring the mining industry, the big banks and the energy companies under public/community ownership and control, so that they can be run in a way that respects Aboriginal rights, the environment and social justice.

The 2012 Poverty In Australia report by the Australian Council of Social Service revealed that 2,265,000 people, including 575,000 children, are still living below the poverty line in Australia.

The demands of the first-ever International Women's Day Rally in Australia, in 1928, were: equal pay for equal work, an 8-hour day for shop assistants, the basic wage for the unemployed and annual holidays on full pay.

The Socialist Alliance stands in solidarity with the growing movement in India fighting violence against women. Progressive forces in that country have braved police brutality and repression, mobilising massive turnouts at protests against gender violence.
