We campaign in solidarity with women around the world who are impacted by the activities of Australian corporations and government policies, supporting their efforts to transform power structures and drive alternatives. Read about some of our wins and current campaigns here!
Our plan to transform trade for women
We know that free trade has significant negative impacts for women’s rights and gender equality around the world. That’s why we’re taking action to transform trade for women. Find out more about the campaign to stop a dodgy new trade deal in Australia!
In June 2018, a team of ActionAid Australia activists from around the country descended on Parliament House with real life ‘watchdogs’ to meet with 18 MPs and Senators. Together they amplified the call for a human rights watchdog that would ensure justice for women in mining-affected communities.
ActionAid Australia works with our growing activist network to hold decision-makers to account and ensure that Australia is fulfilling its responsibility to uphold the rights of women everywhere. The activist network is driven by a dedicated group of volunteers who organise events and campaign actions, bring new people into the movement, and build their leadership skills along the way.
