The Politics of Social Change Foundation (POSC) was launched by The Hon. Penny Sharpe on Wednesday, 11 April 2018 Parliament House, Macquarie Street.
The Foundation has been set up by a group of women committed to redressing women’s inequality and disadvantage.
To inspire others to become agents of progressive change we are retelling the stories of women who contributed to the transformation of Australian women’s lives since the 1970s. We aim to give these stories wider currency through a series of publications online and in print.
The first publication celebrates the career of feminist and socialist Ann Symonds, whose fifty years of political activism included service as a Labor member of the NSW Legislative Council from 1982 to 1998.
Speakers included Ann Symonds, Professor Julie Stubbs, Dr Alex Wodak and Casey Thompson.
Fundraising activities included a silent auction of political collectibles.
