Bridge Housing staff joined thousands of people around the country today to March4Justice to demand action from Parliament on gendered violence. We joined and supported the voices of women at the Sydney rally at Town Hall to demand change and justice for women.

The March4Justice petition to Parliament demanded four actions immediately:
1. Full independent investigations into all cases of gendered violence and timely referrals to appropriate authorities. Full public accountability for findings.
2. Fully implement the 55 recommendations in the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Respect@Work report of the National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces 2020.
3. Lift public funding for gendered violence prevention to world’s best practice.
4. The enactment of a federal Gender Equality Act to promote gender equality. It should include a gender equity audit of Parliamentary practices.

Bridge Housing has strong diversity and inclusion policies and supports the aspirations of female staff, tenants, applicants and women in the community to live and work in environments free from violence and discrimination based on gender.
