2021 has been a year of reckoning for the Morrison Government and the wider Australian public on the issues of violence, discrimination and the abuse of women.
For New South Wales Labor Senator Jenny McAllister, it's been her mission to ensure that legislation was passed to address issues of gender inequality and the safety of women at work as well as in the wider community.
The federal government's response to Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins "Respect@Work" report well short of the mark.
Senator McAllister joins Francis and Sally on this weeks podcast to discuss what needs to be done next, and how we all have a role to play in making change a reality.
