Announcing a review of Australia's multi-question english language citizenship test Citizenship Minister, Chris Evans, explained that:
"citizenship is about understanding your rights and responsibilities as a citizen, things like equality before the law, democratic systems, equal rights for men and women, the very fundamentals about how you operate, about how you're allowed to behave in a democratic society".
Absent provision in the Australian Constitution for a women's jurisdiction at law, the nation defines equality before the law as the male supervison of women in a men's jurisdiction.
Intending immigrants of the view that equality before the law gives women access to justice in their own right should be prohibited entry.
Similarly, since, absent provision for a women's legislature, the Australian Constitution limits women's rights to perpetual supervision by men, intending immigrants of the view that women should have the same rights as men should also be prohibited entry.
Only with a Constitution providing for women's and men's legislatures presided over by an executive of elders accompanied by courts of women's and men's jurisdiction can Australians legitimately accept immigrants who believe in equality before the law and equal rights for men and women.
