quality of tenure

A majority of Australia's Parliament has the power, with corresponding state legislation, to prohibit women whereas only a referendum of the people to which the Parliament must agree has the power to prohibit men.

A referendum of the people approving a provision for Parliament to enact law by agreement between a womenís legislature and a menís legislature secures the same quality of tenure for both women and men.
