Kate Coxall, BSC Green candidate, Wilsons Creek

In response to the silencing tactics of unaware and privileged men in last week’s Echo, I say ‘No’.

We, as women, will no longer be silenced. Women know what silencing means and what it leads to. What goes on behind closed doors, in bedrooms, boardrooms and other places a woman deserves to be treated as though her rights to her body are equal to that of a man’s.

I am here to tell you that a woman’s body is not here for your pleasure. A woman’s toil and mind is not here to be used or belittled as you feel, to serve you. It is 2021 and we are free, rising and coming to a council, boardroom, and battlefield near you, and we are ready to ROAR.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
