Feminist action session – discussion on combatting sexual harassment at work

About this event

Note: this event will be held online due to COVID-19 risks and restrictions.

Come along to our Feminist Action Session to help the Working Women’s Centre develop practical tools that can be used in workplaces.  

1 in 3 Australians have experienced sexual harassment at work, yet only 18% of victims report their experience (according to the Respect@Work Report 2020).  

The Working Women’s Centre SA has recently completed research that found that workplace posters are effective and engaging tools to highlight inappropriate behaviour and connect victims with support avenues. In the upcoming Feminist Action session, we will discuss ways in which we can combat sexual harassment in our workplaces and communities and support victims of sexual harassment. We’ll also share ideas for a meaningful poster for South Australian workplaces.  

In this session you will have the opportunity to share your ideas and discuss the topic with like-minded individuals. 

CONTENT NOTE: This event will involve a discussion of workplace sexual violence.

Feminist action session – a COVID-19 recovery that factors in young women

About this event

The Working Women’s Centre SA has launched a report titled Loss of Work, Isolation & Worry: The Disproportionate Impact of COVID-19 on Young Women. In the report, we share the experiences of young women during the pandemic, as well as crucial policy recommendations that improve gender equality throughout the Covid-19 recovery process.  

We need decision makers to hear young women’s voices and make our recommendations happen! To achieve this goal, we need your support to make our voice stronger. Come along to our action session to help us spread the word!  

You will have the chance to take action in support of these recommendations amongst other like-minded people, and with information and support from the Working Women’s Centre.

This session will include:  

  • Spreading the word on social media
  • Asking organizations to sign on in support of the recommendations , and
  • Contacting your MP 

We will speak briefly about how you can take action, and then provide plenty of time to take action together.  

Bring a laptop if you have one!  

Snacks provided. 

We can’t wait to see you there!
