March 4 Justice

Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore) (18:12:22):

On Monday 15 March I joined many thousands of women and men to march through the streets of Sydney in the March 4 Justice. Too many women are not safe in their homes, workplaces, schools or even walking home at night, and the prevailing message from the march was that women have had enough. I acknowledge everybody who shared their stories on that day and bore witness to the incredible traumas that women have suffered across our society. I particularly thank the women and men who joined us from places across Sydney and New South Wales in solidarity. Within this place I thank the many colleagues who joined us, including the Attorney General and the Minister for Energy and Environment, who walked with me. I acknowledge the health Minister for ensuring that we could have a COVID‑safe regulation change to ensure that the march could proceed. Women's voices are too often silenced. Too often women feel ashamed to come forward or feel that the weight of justice is not available to them. This is just the beginning of a journey that we are on and I say once again that I put my voice behind them in the March 4 Justice.
