The Australian Government is currently negotiating a trade deal known as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). If signed, this deal will massively boost the power of corporations at the expense of women’s rights – especially in low-income countries.
Rumours are that in the next few weeks, RCEP will be finalised. Now more than ever we need you to get behind this campaign to stop this dangerous trade deal.
With your support, we’ll keep pushing MPs and Senators to hold firm on the commitments they’ve made to ensure trade deals promote and protect women’s rights. And we’ll lobby others who aren’t over the line yet.
None of this can happen without your support.
Will you chip to power our campaign to put women’s rights over the rights of big corporations?

How are women affected by trade deals like RCEP?
RCEP gives special rights for corporations to sue governments over laws that protect women's rights over profits. This means deregulation of essential public services, reduced access to decent work for women, and more temporary migrant women workers exposed to exploitation.
Negotiations also take place in secret, behind closed doors. The public will not see the text until it's signed.
If we stop RCEP, what are we campaigning for in its place?
We'll continue to lobby the Australian Government to only sign trade deals that fulfil, respect and protect the rights of women everywhere. And to ensure women have an ongoing seat at the table to ensure their demands for fairness and social justice are meaningfully heard.
