In accordance with standing order 79, Mr Speaker has determined that the matter proposed by Ms Porter be submitted to the Assembly, namely:
The importance of supporting and valuing women in the ACT community.
MS PORTER (Ginninderra) (3.22): I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak today about the importance of supporting and valuing women in the ACT community. Supporting women and girls in our community can take many forms because they need different types of support at different stages of their lives.
Earlier this year, the Children and Young People Commissioner in the ACT Human Rights Commission visited a number of schools, childcare centres and youth centres across Canberra to ask, "Why are girls important?"The girls were asked to communicate their responses through the creation of cloth banners that were then displayed at the International Women's Day awards. Over 500 children and young people participated in the project.
