Tens of thousands show support in Women’s March 4 Justice rally
These rallies were spurred by a recent wave of allegations of sexual assault, centred around Australia’s parliament. Brittany Higgins was a staffer in office of the Minister of Defence when she was raped by another Liberal party staffer. The government moved to hide the assault, but eventually the prime minister was forced to address the issue, wherein he made a blundering and daft statement that further evidence of the issue of toxic masculinity in Australian parliament. This is an ongoing story, but a powerful example of women standing together to demand justice.
