The past few weeks in Australia have been tumultuous...especially if you're a woman. Women are angry, we're sad and we want change.
Tanya Plibersek MP is the Shadow Minister for Women and the Shadow Minister for Education and Training, and she has been crucial in the conversation about violence against women.
Last week, she walked out of Parliament house to join the March4Justice, and the next day she delivered over 135,000 petitions calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to take action.
Now, she talks to Mia about the culture in parliament and what she hopes the future will hold.
