Seven ways the Coalition’s 2021 budget is blue — not pink

Lastly, while this Budget makes extra-legal assistance available for victims of domestic violence, they will need it, since, in a move condemned by judges and legal experts, the Family Court was abolished earlier this year. This Budget, unlike previous ones, recognises that women exist and appears to target them for special small relief measures that may be afforded other minority groups. Except, as Helen Dally Fisher from the Equality Rights Alliance points out, “…Women aren’t a special interest group, we are more than half the population”. This type of fiscal approach, then, intended to address the systemic inequality long-endured by the majority sex, is tokenism at best.
