women's rights republic

Republicans concerned with Australia's notoriously difficult to change Constitution might consider women's rights.

Women's rights to vote and to stand for Parliament were legislated.

Men's rights are implied.

The Constitution must be amended to give women and men equal rights.

Referendum questions to amend the Constitution to grant women the same rights to vote and to stand for Parliament as men would receive overwhelming support.

Senior citizens occupy the executive when women and men have equal rights.

Equity is achieved with provision for women's and men's legislatures presided over by an executive of elders accompanied by courts of women's and men's jurisdiction.

Women and men might elect legislatures to appoint elders who authorise judges.

An Australian Republic in recognition of women's rights would set a standard of fair-minded governance for the global community.
