International Women’s Day forum:
Fighting misogyny today

Tuesday March 8
6pm, Perth Activist Centre
15/5 Aberdeen St, Perth (next to McIver Station)

Women in Australia confront entrenched inequality and sexism in public and private life. As racism and Islamophobia are used for political ends, and with other intersecting oppressions, many women face added challenges. Yet we’re fighting back!

This forum is to celebrate how far we’ve come, take stock, and look at where to next for women’s liberation.
