Thousands of Australians have gathered across the country on Monday to protest misogyny in the federal parliament. Protestors participated in more than 40 rallies, calling for an end to "sexism, misogyny, dangerous workplace cultures and lack of equality" in politics and the community at large as part of the March4Justice. The movement, which organizers described as "the biggest uprising of women that Australia's seen," was established after former government adviser Brittany Higgins went public with allegations that she was raped in the Parliament House in 2019, and Attorney-General Christian Porter was accused of a historical rape.
