Kate Robinson tells us about WOMEN* NOW, an exhibition at Queen Victoria Women's Centre featuring feminist art works by more than 50 artists, designers and makers. Kate's artwork features in the exhibition, and is a board member at QVWC.

Associate Professor Dominique Allen joins us to share the findings in a new report by the Monash Business School about the discrimination pregnant women face in the workplace.

Karen Fletcher is an activist with the Homes Not Prisons campaign as well as the Executive Officer at Flat Out, state-wide advocacy and support service for women, trans and gender diverse people (and their children) who have been criminalised. Karen joins us to talk about the lack of safe and secure housing provided for women who have experienced criminalisation, and the importance of funding public resources.

This week is International Transgender Awareness week, and to celebrate this, Sasja Sÿdek – co-founder of Trans Sisters United, Trans Pride March Melbourne and board member of Transfemme – joins us. Sasja hosts and produces Queering the Air, right here on 3CR.

We hear excerpts of interviews recorded by Indigenous Rights Radio from the Indigenous Peoples Caucus at COP27. Cultural Survival conducted interviews with Pasang Dolma, Joan Carling, Angel Levac Brant and Aeshoutou Manu on the impacts of Climate Change.
