ASMOF joins nationwide protests

12-Mar-2021

 

ASMOF staff will be attending the March 4 Justice in Sydney on Monday and we would love to see you there. March 4 Justice has been organised in response to sexual abuse allegations in Canberra, and organisers are demanding our Government takes action on gendered violence. The Age has reported on the grassroots origins of the protests here.

The March will begin at 12 at Town Hall and attendees are encouraged to wear black and wear a mask. Full details can be found on the facebook event page here: https://fb.me/e/d2C1oWQNj

You can support March 4 Justice by attending the rally or by signing the petition here: https://march4justice.nationbuilder.com/

The petition includes a demand to 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. ASMOF submitted to this Review highlighting sexual harassment and gender inequities in medicine, and the final report recognised that the medical profession’s hierarchical structure made women in the profession more vulnerable to sexual harassment
