Greens MLA Amanda Bresnan will host a reception for Marg Phelan who is cycling around Australia (Darwin to Darwin) in support of women's choices in maternity care and access to continuity of midwifery care.
Her journey has been incredible thus far but, tragically, it has included the loss of her only daughter, Anne-Maree a year ago. After a long stop in Melbourne with family Marg is back in the saddle for the return trip North.
She has met and inspired many on this journey. Please pay tribute to her dedication to women and midwives and welcome her to the National Capital.
Equality Rights Alliance (Sydney members/friends) and WEL NSW have come together this year to hold a joint end of year party on Monday 19 December at the WEL NSW's leafy courtyard.
Everyone is welcome so please feel free to bring along a friend as we reflect on the year that was for women and what the year ahead might hold. It should be a great opportunity to catch up and network with other ERA members.
If you are not able to attend please pass on the invitation, or if you aren’t in Sydney, feel free to pass on to your Sydney based associates! We’d love to meet new faces from our ERA members and supporters.
Madame Brussels (Level 3, 59-63 Bourke St, Melbourne). We'll be outside on the "rather fancy terrace".
