Step up feminists: It's not over yet

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearchpeer-review

Abstract

[Extract] As we approach the 30th anniversary of the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth) ('SDA') it is timely to reflect on the status of women's equality in Australia. Could it be true to say, as some have suggested, that we inhabit a post-feminist era.

The foundation of feminism — in all its guises — rests upon the establishment and defence of women's enjoyment of equal political, economic and social rights. While legislation such as the SDA enshrines gender equality into law, substantive equality remains elusive.
