    Beyond the Father's Shadow, Saba Vasefi

    Beyond The Father's Shadow is a short film by Iranian-Australian feminist documentary filmmaker Saba Vasefi. It is the story of Australia’s first female parliamentarian, Edith Cowan. The film reveals the struggles behind her ascent to power. Saba Vasefi uses metaphoric and poetic imagery to depict how Edith Cowan's traumatic childhood experiences motivated her to become a social worker and then the first female member of the Australian parliament.

    Film screening will be followed by a panel on various forms of discrimination against women in politics.

    Transform Transport launch, with Mehreen Faruqi and Lee Rhiannon

    For far too long, the transport agenda in New South Wales has been dominated by building massive new polluting toll roads and privatising our existing transport system. 

    What we need is serious investment in publicly-owned, integrated public transport across our state.

    The new Greens campaign calls on the Baird government to invest in public and active transport, cancel unnecessary and polluting toll roads, and adopt bold modal share targets for public transport across the state.
