Australian citizens support aid for women and girls

Nearly 10,000 Australian citizens have thrown their weight behind an online campaign calling on the Australian Government to ensure that cuts to overseas aid don’t undermine women’s and girl’s right to decide what happens to their body,  the size of their family  - their future.

The petition was handed in by the Director General of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Tewodros Melesse, to the Executive Committee of the Australian Parliamentary Group on Population and Development (PGPD) in Canberra on Tuesday 11 August.
