Policy initiative: Equality for women 4.11 MB

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 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. 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. We acknowledge that transgender women and gender diverse people often experience compounded sexism and discrimination, which The Greens will address in our comprehensive LGBTIQ+ policies.
