Event description

Description

January 20th 2019. The #WomensWave is coming.

Our mission:

“To harness the power of everyone present to change the culture of violence against women for the next generation.

Australia’s culture of violence against women is a crisis. It is rooted in a widespread cultural acceptance that the values, roles and rights of women are lesser than those of men. It is time to change this culture so that the next generation of women can live their lives to their fullest potential; free from intimidation, harassment and violence. Women have the right to be safe, claim their space, be respected and have their voices heard.”

When: 20 January 2019

Where: Hyde Park South, Sydney

Time: 11:30am
March: 12:30pm
Fair: 1-3pm

The #WomensWave will begin in Hyde Park with speeches. Please welcome our speakers:

MC Yumi Stynes (Media personality and host of Is Australia Sexist?)
Aunty Norma (Indigenous community leader and activist)
Bhenji Ra (Indigenous queer artist-activist)
Jane Brock (Immigrant Women’s Speakout and 1 Billion Rising)
Bri Lee (Award winning author of Eggshell Skull)
Rae Johnston (Head editor of Junkee Media)

We will then march to Belmore Park, a show of our power, strength, and unity.
