My mother would have been 86 today. She died at 54. My children and grandchildren didn’t get to know her. And I didn’t get to forgive her. Sad today 😪

During the peaceful Women’s March for Justice against gendered violence, the fed govt response was that marchers should be grateful they were not met with bullets. During an actual riot from violent men protesting against public health, there are crickets from the fed govt.

Overstretched nurses are turning up to support our frail loved ones in #agedcare, yet the Morrison Government won't support them with laws for 24-hour nursing care in nursing homes as the Royal Commission recommended. What are they waiting for? #ItsNotTooMuch to ask.

When political parties continue to support and appoint men into leadership positions who are accused of abusing women, it tells women they don’t matter. It condones sexual harassment & assault. It silences us & breeds political apathy. abc.net.au/news/2018-09-18/c… #BarnabyJoyce

Yesterday, the Government joined One Nation in voting against my motion for a Committee on truth-telling and treaty making at the national level. It was defeated in a tied vote. This is a clear failure of leadership and a missed opportunity to heal the wounds of the past. #auspol

A reminder that the Sex Discrimination Commissioner handed down a national report on sexual harassment at work 12 months ago. That report had 55 recommendations. It has been totally ignored by this Government.
