    Prominent Australian women have formed a powerful new alliance calling for concrete actions to protect women and children from violence, harassment and to end discrimination.

    Prominent Australian women have formed a powerful new alliance calling for concrete actions to protect women and children from violence, harassment and to end discrimination.

    The group, called Safety, Respect, Equity, includes Christine Holgate, Brittany Higgins, Grace Tame and Lucy Turnbull, who have penned an open letter to Australians calling for reforms to address a range of issues disproportionately impacting women.

    Ms Holgate said women in Australia had been calling for action for generations, but the time for change had finally come after a dramatic increase in public awareness and support for their causes in 2021.

    “There have been countless reviews, inquiries, promises, conferences and bodies established to assess and report on the inequity and injustice women face, but there has been no meaningful change,” she said.

    “We will not accept this any longer, and we’re asking all Australians to join us in demanding real action.”

    Former MP Julia Banks, ACTU President Michele O’Neil, businesswoman Wendy McCarthy, consent activist Chanel Contos, Paralympic gold medallist Madison de Rozario, academic Larissa Behrendt, youth advocate Yasmin Poole and The Parenthood executive director Georgie Dent are also in the group.

    The women will seek action on critical issues including preventing sexual harassment and bullying, implementing stronger and consistent child sexual assault laws, support for First Nation’s women and people with a disability, expansion of paid parental leave and embedding of respectful relationships and consent educations in schools, universities, workplaces and homes.

    Ms Dent said the sense of collective anger and frustration at a lack of progress in improving respect and safety for women had brought the women together across generational, cultural and political lines.

    “We are tired of empty promises,” she said.

    “Every woman in Australia deserves access to a safe place to work, a safe place to live, fair and equal pay, quality free early learning and care, and a justice system that works for survivors.”

    Ms Poole said the statistics confronting Australian women and girls were disturbing.

    “One in five women in Australia will be sexually assaulted or raped in her lifetime, and two in five women have faced sexual harassment in the workplace in the last five years,” she said.

    “If you’re a First Nations woman, a woman of colour, have a disability or identify as LGBTIQ+, those statistics are even worse.”

    Ms Tame said problems of safety and equity weren’t “just a women’s issue,” but a “human rights issue”.

    “We’ve had the reviews, the reports, the talkfests – it’s time for our leaders to get to work, stop the abuse of power and bring about real change,” she said.

    I would bet that all the women in that group have had a better, more privileged life than nearly all of their female ancestors.
    Both my grandmothers (and grandfathers, of course) lived through two world wars, and the Great Depression, the latter of which all their children also lived through (and had to be provided for), with very little in the way of a safety net or handouts from the government.

    Ancestors?

    They’re more privileged than 99.999% of the people in Australia right now.

    Looks like the lead element of Australia’s Diverse Expeditionary Force to Ukraine. Can we start processing the one-way plane tickets now?

    Let us know how you go girls. Get that rainbow camouflage on and don’t forget to explain ‘The Patriarchy’ immediately on first contact with the enemy.

    Why would any bloke want to risk their life to defend these entitled PoS.

    Note well this goal:

    …embedding of respectful relationships and consent educations in schools, universities, workplaces and homes.

    Decoded: they want a ramped-up war on boys and they want the state to take over even the getting of wisdom in the home.

    How about a SMILE for all the men…

    Initially read that as SMLE for all the men (Short Magazine Lee Enfield .303) and thought what a great idea.

    Sure. Hendo:

    On the Q&A program on April 2011, the Northern Territory indigenous activist Bess Price broadly supported the Commonwealth’s intervention in the Northern Territory which is aimed at protecting Aboriginal women and children from abuse. This led to a tweet from inner-city indigenous lawyer and UTS academic Larissa Behrendt – who has taken the fashionable position of opposing the intervention under both the Howard and Gillard governments – which read as follows:

    I watched the show where a guy had sex with a horse and I’m sure it was less offensive than Bess Price.

    So what did Jenna Price say about the put down of Bess Price by Larissa Behrendt? Well, she thought it was quite okay. That’s what. Writing in the Canberra Times on 19 April 2011, Jenna Price commented:

    She [Larissa Behrendt] heads the Gillard Government’s review of Aboriginal higher education and is under attack because she tweeted during last week’s episode of Q&A that she thought watching a show where a guy had sex with a horse was less offensive than Bess Price…….
    So there you have it. Ms Price demands that Alan Jones condemn anyone who uses sex to demean or vilify someone else. That’s bad – despite the fact that Alan Jones has never been accused of sexual vilification or discrimination. However, the very same Ms Price publicly supported Larissa Behrendt using sex to demean and vilify Bess Price just last year.

    Jenna Price is a leftist academic at the University of Technology, Sydney. She wants Jones to stop abusing people – but is unfussed by Behrendt’s abuse…

    This looks like another leftist front organisation.

  11. Tel says:

    I’m willing to respect anyone who stood up during 2020 for the basic human right of freedom of association and people being able to visit family and friends … did any of these women speak up about that?

    I’m willing to respect anyone who stood up during 2021 for the principle of informed consent regarding to medical procedures and, I respect anyone who stood up against bullying and coercion … did any of these women speak up about that?

    Respect is a two way street and unfortunately I don’t respect hypocrites. More than happy to be proven wrong, if anyone can find relevant public statements made in 2020 and 2021 when people really needed a prominent woman to show a bit of leadership.

    Aw, they cropped all the cats out of the photo. Methinks that little lot are safe from men. As they will discover in the lonely years ahead.

  13. C.L. says:

    Good spot, Ivan.

    They’ve popped First Nations women (aka Aborigines) into their agenda – which is nice, albeit belated. Last year, the Canberra March4Justice folks and the ABC famously wouldn’t have anything to do with black troublemakers Jacinta Price and Cheron Long.

    Or a bong

    support for First Nation’s women

    These hags will do precisely nothing to help genuine Aboriginal women (or children). As noted above, they are far more likely to attack them.

    Decoded: they want a ramped-up war on boys and they want the state to take over even the getting of wisdom in the home.

    Exactly C.L. This is not the first time that the “home” has been mentioned by feminists in Australia. Very disturbing indeed.

    “One in five women in Australia will be sexually assaulted or raped in her lifetime, and two in five women have faced sexual harassment in the workplace in the last five years,” she said.

    Bollocks on stilts. We need more than just Latho to call this rubbish out.

  16. Cassie of Sydney says:

    It’s a gruesome picture…isn’t it?

    “This looks like another leftist front organisation.”

    Correct…and that’s all it is. It’s all attention seeking bulldust. And note how there are no women of the right in the picture? BTW, not one of these women ever called out and denounced the abuse metered out to Nicolle Flint and other women on the right. But then again, there’s nothing quite like the left and the stench of hypocrisy.

    Oh and I note how Luce Turnbull is a member of this “clique”. I remember back in 2018 how Luce’s son, Alex Turnbull, said the following in a tweet about Janet Albrechtsen….

    “Almost as funny as having sex with Michael Kroger”.

    In the ensuing outrage, he was forced to apologise and did so with the following lame apology…

    Apologies to Janet Albrechtsen. Your personal life, much like your opinions on family values and judgements on the lives of others have no place in public discourse.”

    Luce Turnbull should start by lecturing her own son about his obnoxious and sexist attitudes towards women before she pontificates to others. But I suppose I shouldn’t expect much, the Turnbulls, like most of the left, are complete and utter hypocrites.

  17. Lee says:

    Decoded: they want a ramped-up war on boys and they want the state to take over even the getting of wisdom in the home.

    Boys are already faring significantly worse than girls at school, and the suicide rate among teenage boys/young men is alarmingly higher than for females of the same age.
    The ongoing push to demonise boys and young men is helping no one.
    Bettina Arndt, to her great credit, has a lot say about this.

  18. JC says:

    As she gets older, Madam Turnbull is the spitting image of Dame Edna. Scary stuff.

    What a miserable, unhappy bunch of sheilas.

  19. Wyndham Dix says:

    Prominent Australian women have formed a powerful new alliance calling for concrete actions … to end discrimination.

    These self-focused and privileged women cannot hear what they are saying. For the last forty years affirmative action has discriminated entirely in favour of women; longer if Murphy’s Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) is included.

    The more they whine for still more preferential treatment the more any self-respecting male will avoid them. Men at the end of their tether may not be so circumspect.

    I would instinctively attempt to rescue them from a fire or similar emergency, but not offer assistance in lesser circumstances. Not just them but all women outside my family and limited circle friends. The risk of sharp tongues accusing me of patronising them is too great.

    We have bred two generations of self-entitled ingrates who think they can act with impunity.

  20. Petros says:

    Meanwhile Australian men will more and more likely marry Asian women. Consequences, people.

  21. a reader says:

    I see somebody else got the Price and Long bit in. It was my first thought too. These inner city left-wing women wouldn’t know the pain of an Aboriginal lady in Tennant Creek. They don’t understand the working mum in Penrith or Werribbee-married, coupled, single or divorced. They don’t understand choosing the home brand to get more bang for your buck.

    They earn more than I will ever see (as a youngish man). When at Australia Post Holgate earned 30 times my salary. They’re just not real

  22. Bushkid says:

    Not one of those women in any way represents me, or holds much in the way of ideas, ambitions, accomplishments or expectations in common with me.

    Frankly, I’m very pleased to be able to say that!

  23. Baba says:

    They all look very unhappy. Can’t they find something more rewarding to do?
