Women, politics and boys' clubs: ‘If you needed any better example of what happens when you don’t have enough women in the parliament, this is it.’ Time for change! Go Ruth! ⁦@hula_grl⁩ ⁦@GuardianAus⁩ ⁦@BPWAust⁩ #wfea https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/nov/22/women-politics-and-boys-clubs-when-women-get-organised-watch-out

Just listened to a brilliant @OurCommunityAU webinar with founders of @honourawoman @hula_grl, @CarolKiernan6 and Elizabeth Hartnell-Young - 3 incredible women committed to ensuring women get recognition they deserve in Aus Honours. Here’s to structural reform to ensure equity!

We need to set 50% targets. All political parties need formal targets for honours and to reject the closed secret boys club we now have. Those awarded need to make more than a paid 'contribution' to our communities. Reject 'awards for the boys' with mere jobs however well paid. https://twitter.com/samsplace9/status/1329526035713388544
