To the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

Women continue to suffer discrimination in many areas of employment.

In traditional 'male' industries such as steel, the denial of equal rights and opportunities has resulted in disproportionate numbers of women being hired and fired.

We therefore humbly request that the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia:

Introduce, extend and implement anti-discrimination legislation which includes affirmative action policies to effectively remedy this injustice.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
