"Twenty years on none of this seems remarkable. At the time, the politics surrounding the bill were explosive. From the first legislative step, the ratification of the UN convention, the initiative met with sustained, vociferous and irrational opposition from powerful sectors of the community." - Susan Ryan on the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act
As the first event for 2017 and to celebrate International Women's Day, NSW Labor Lawyers will host a dinner with former Senator for the ACT, Minister for Women, and Age Discrimination Commissioner Susan Ryan AO.
