Housing 4 Equality Event



Monday, 7th March

12:00PM - 1:30PM


With over 400,000 women over the age of 45 at risk of homelessness, the provision of affordable, long-term housing for women is vital to prevent even more older women from falling into homelessness. On the other hand, younger women are finding it more difficult to secure a foothold in the Australian dream of owning a home.

This situation has to change, and with the upcoming federal election, now is the time to understand the connection between housing and gender equality; and why without affordable, long-term housing, women will continue to lag behind.

This webinar features the following panelists:
(i) Maggie Shambrook, Housing Older Women, Qld
(ii) Molly George, YWCA National Housing Director
(iii) Rachel Ong ViforJ, Professor of Economics, Curtin University

Responder: Kate Colvin, National Spokesperson, Everybody’s Home
Moderator: Toni Hassan, Equality Rights Alliance
