Enough is Enough

Kate Thwaites, Jenny Macklin

What is it about the culture and structure of Parliament House that has allowed sexual violence and harassment to flourish? The number of women in the Australian Parliament has increased, but unfortunately, they are still not being heard. And tragically, they are not always safe.

We believe in the power of politics to do good, and we recognise that politics is about power: getting it, holding onto it, and using it to improve citizens' lives. Women wielding power in Parliament House, women fighting for equality and an end to discrimination across our country, have made their mark and they have caused change. But the underlying problem of men’s attitudes towards women, of men believing it is their right to assault or harass women, remains.

For this to change, men will have to give up some of the harmful ways in which they use power - in the parliament and in our community. In Enough Is Enough, Kate Thwaites and Jenny Macklin call for actions to have consequences, for an end to a culture of political impunity, and to make sure that women are not just in the room, but that they are safe there. We say enough is enough.
