To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

  The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia rejects outright the Childcare Rebate Act 1993.

  This Act:

1.fails to acknowledge the 45% of women who entered the workforce solely for economic reasons. inadequate in addressing equity in women and family choices.

3.does not recognise the value of unpaid work of a woman at home.

4.ignores the need for women with dependent children to be treated equally by way of a benefit replacing all other child related allowances and subsidies.

  Your petitioners request that the Senate repeal the Childcare Rebate Act 1993.
