Creating a safe parliamentary workplace for women: Next steps for the Jenkins report

The Law Reform and Social Justice Project at the ANU College of Law in conjunction with the Gender Institute will be holding a panel discussion during the week of International Women’s Day. In light of the Jenkins report on sexual harassment and assault in parliament, the panel will focus on women in parliament and the introduction of a code of conduct for parliamentarians.

The safety of women working in parliament is a paramount concern for many of our students who aspire to work in politics or the public service. Please join us at a high level panel discussion into creating a safe parliamentary workspace, and what we can do as a community to ensure the implementation of the recommendations of the Jenkins report.

This is an opportunity to hear from some extraordinary thinkers and activists working in the field of gender, politics and rights. There will also be an opportunity to meet informally with the panellists after the main event. Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating and important discussion.
