International Women’s Day march, Sydney, Saturday 8 March 2014. Anne Barber (WEL–NSW) in the 2014 IWD march. The march had two central demands: “Equal Pay” and “Stop Zoe’s Law” (the introduction of a foetal personhood law in the NSW Parliament).
The 1992 WEL National Conference was particularly important. It was celebrating 20 years since WEL’s formation and representative of older and newer women’s organisations attended it to discuss whether or not they should form a coalition.
