Protests against gender violence in Sydney : a call for legislative action

Gender violence is an “epidemic” in Australia, declared Prime Minister Anthony Albanese on Saturday, as thousands of people gathered in Sydney and other major Australian cities demanding stricter laws against gender violence. These rallies were prompted by a surge of violence against women that the government says has led to a woman being murdered every four days this year.

Protests Following a Tragic Event in Sydney

The rallies follow a mass stabbing incident in Sydney earlier this month, which claimed the lives of six people, including five women. Protesters, calling for stricter criminal laws, gathered in Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, for a rally followed by a march that blocked the city streets. Some protesters carried signs with the inscriptions “Respect” and “No More Violence.”
