As AHPs, we know from experience that inequity continues to be the reality in the workplace.

Whether that’s through the distribution of wealth, career progression or the challenges in being a primary caregiver and balancing the demands of an increasingly demanding job.

Barriers to receiving timely, affordable and accessible care –  from endometriosis to pelvic health, from abortion to fertility – remain interminably entrenched.

VAHPA continues to struggle for affordable access to childcare, Flexible Working Arrangements, a safe workplace free of sexual harassment and discrimination.

We are angry that despite years of research, advocacy and struggle that we still have so far to go to achieve justice, safety, respect and equality for all women.

We ask you to come march with us this International Women’s Day!

Join us as we rally through Melbourne together on Thursday 7 March at 5.30pm to demand real action. What won’t you be silent about? What action do you want to see?

We welcome and encourage all women, cis and trans, non-binary and gender diverse folks of all age, size, colour, race, sexuality, identity, religion and culture and our allies and comrades to attend the rally.
