A message for International Women's Day

06 March 2020

An equal world is an enabled world

The theme for International Women’s Day is Each for Equal. On the surface, equality doesn’t seem to be a hard ask and yet, we know that in Australia and New Zealand, in every country and community in the world, women are not equal.


As recently as this week, we have been made aware that women in a large regional town in NSW cannot access surgical abortion. We know that women experience bullying and harassment in the workplace, financial, social and employment discrimination, domestic violence and sexual assault.
 
On International Women’s Day 2020, we should speak of the value of women, about how we love and respect them and about how it should be. That is all true. It may be difficult but let’s begin by confronting what it really is, calling it out, acknowledging the facts and pledging to change the paradigm, now, and into the future.

Dr Vijay Roach,
RANZCOG President
