International Womens Day 2009

To mark International Womens Day on the 8th of March this year we will be focusing on putting pressure on the government to get a National Plan of Action (NPoA) to Eliminate Violence against Women. The release of the draft NPoA has been put back to March, so there is now a serious threat that the NPoA may not be funded in this years budget. This will break the Federal Government's election promise.

There are lots of ways that you can involved with the Stop Violence against Women Campaign and Interntaional Womens Day to make a difference on this issue:
  • Volunteer at local events and stalls in February and March
  • Do a sticker run/door knock around your local area
  • Hold your own events or letter writing stalls in key electorates
  • Contact the NSW Stop Violence against women group and come along to one of their meetings to look out how you can get inmvolved in their initiatives
  • Get involved with lobbying your local MP about why we need a National Plan of Action.
For more infomation about all of these contact your NSW Community Campaigner
