To celebrate International Women's Day, Her Place took to the streets of Melbourne to ask her residents what they'd like to see in a museum for women...

Jo and Melba We found Jo and Melba protesting at Federation Square against Phillippine President Rodrigo Duterte, along with the Australian Coalition Against the resurgence of Dictatorship (ACARD) in the Phillippines and the World. “We are making a statement against state-sanctioned sexual violence. We see this in countries all over the world. Rodrigo Duterte has really lifted the bar of disgusting in recent statements where he is now encouraging his forces to shoot women rebels in the vagina. He doesn’t want them killed, he thinks this will render them useless. It’s a breach of humanitarian law that needs to be addressed. Other leaders of the world have to hold him to account. We have appalling examples of toxic leadership by men across many nations, we’ve got to call that out.“ #timeisnow #iwd2018
